Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behavior. The discipline embraces all aspects of the human experience — from the functions of the brain to the actions of nations, from child development to care for the aged.

Psychology is one of the most popular undergraduate majors and helps prepare for careers in psychology, counseling, law, social services, education, business and many service industries. You can tell your future employer that your understanding of human behavior is essential to being successful in the workplace! Your greater understanding of relationships and the well-being of others is not only useful in your life but also makes you a better supervisor.
