Psychology

Human thought, feeling, and behavior are endlessly complex – and endlessly interesting. Psychology mines this complexity, pairing science and the humanities to study mental processes with an eye to improving human dignity and welfare.

If you’re interested in psychology, you’re likely interested in people – what makes them tick, why they do what they do, and how to help them find their way to better, more meaningful lives.

At St. Norbert College, you can earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology. Or you may minor in the field.

A Psychology Degree at Work

As a psychology major, your employment opportunities are limited only by your motivation and creativity. You can put your understanding of human behavior to work in a wide variety of careers:

  • Human resources manager
  • Teacher
  • Market research analyst
  • Account executive
  • Human services specialist
  • Customer service expert
  • Public relations manager
  • Grant writer
  • Advertising manager
  • Training and development professional
  • Labor relations specialist
  • Copywriter
  • Caseworker

A bachelor’s degree in psychology also prepares you for graduate school in fields like psychology, counseling and social work.

Enrich Your Psychology Degree

As a psychology student at St. Norbert, you’ll be encouraged to pursue collaborative research with a faculty member. You can then participate in undergraduate research conferences and publish your work in undergraduate research journals.

If your academic achievement places you in the top 35 percent of your class, you’ll qualify for membership in Psi Chi, the college’s psychology club. Strong academic performance in psychology can also net you one of several paid psychology teaching assistantships on campus.

If you’d like to expand your study of human behavior into the “real world,” you can pursue an internship – as 25 percent of St. Norbert psychology majors do each year.

We also encourage you to immerse yourself in another culture by studying abroad.
