If you’re fascinated by behavior and mental processes, psychology is the major for you.
In psychology classes, you will explore the scientific approach to understanding the mind and behavior. You can customize a psychology major to prepare yourself for a career or graduate studies in a variety of areas, such as clinical or counseling professions, developmental studies, neuroscience, human resources and a host of other fields.
In addition, you’ll have numerous opportunities to conduct research and study – inside the lab and out.
The current trend in science is to understand nature from multiple perspectives. A neuroscience minor can build on your psychology background.
Engage with faculty on research projects, as well as several research experiences built into the curriculum. Faculty-student research outside the classroom is a key factor in admission to graduate school. At Concordia, we’ll prepare you well. You may even have the chance to present your research.

With a degree in psychology, you’ll be prepared for a career in a variety of fields or graduate school.
