Psychology

Psychology is the study of the mind and behavior, so an understanding of the field can be applied to a broad range of career fields. Once you’ve learned to explain thought, emotion and behavior, you’ll be able to provide valuable insights for the benefit of your employer. Or, you’ll be poised to continue your education in fields such as social work, clinical counseling, law, business or medicine.
