Why do people do what they do? Psychologists study behavior and from your own experience, you know behavior is complicated! If you want to better understand yourself and others, psychology is for you.
We use biological, cognitive, developmental, social and personality perspectives to study why we do what we do. This training is useful in many ways to find success in clinical, forensic, corporate, research and educational settings.
