Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind and its functions. This concentration delves into topics such as perception, learning, research methods, mental disorders, and more. In addition to studying behavior and mental processes, the Psychology concentration also focuses on industrial/organizational psychology where students examine how organizations work and develop techniques to help them function more effectively.
