Learn The Science Of Human Behavior

From learning the art of persuading others to peel back the layers of human consciousness, psychology attempts to understand complex human behavior. Using the tools of the scientific method, psychologists investigate issues that impact our daily lives and the world around us such as human development, prejudice and discrimination, memory processes, and mental health, to name a few. Your instructors show you how to apply psychological concepts to understand human behavior and train you in research methodology and statistics to be an effective consumer of information.

This preparation emphasizes an empirical approach with a concerted focus on the use of research methodology and statistical analysis to solve problems.
