What is it about people that causes them to act the way they do? Understanding the human mind can show you how to best encourage people through difficult times, help businesses get the most from their workers, allow advertisers to make informed choices about what will appeal to a particular market, and increase the chances of diffusing dangerous situations peacefully. As a psychology major on our Storm Lake, Iowa, campus, you’ll learn about behavior and mental processes – both the normal and the aberrant – as you seek to understand why people are the way they are and the human possibilities for change.
Majoring in psychology and earning your bachelor’s degree can prepare you for graduate training in psychology, counseling, school psychology and social work. Through your studies, you’ll read journal articles extensively as you gain an understanding of how to evaluate research, then have the option to produce your own year-long research project your junior year in the program.
