Research Psychology Degree
Research Psychology is an ideal major for students not interested in a licensed profession, but who may want graduate work in psychology or careers in colleges, universities, research centers, government or private businesses. If you enjoy studying human behavior or exploring theoretical problems, this major is for you.
