Psychology and Neuroscience

Psychology and neuroscience serve as pathways to understanding human perceptions, motivations, attitudes and behaviors.

Take a scientific approach to address topics such as physiology, cognitive function, social influence, organizational behavior, mental disorders and treatment. By delving into the complexities and processes of the mind, you will benefit from your ability to apply your understanding of human behavior to any career you choose.
