Psychology is the science of human behavior, mental processes, and experience. Psychology is a diverse discipline, grounded in science, but with nearly boundless applications in everyday life. Some psychologists do basic research, developing theories and testing them through carefully honed research methods involving observation, experimentation and analysis. Other psychologists apply the discipline’s scientific knowledge to help people, organizations and communities function more successfully.Summer Session

What will I study?
Using the processes and principles of human development as a foundation, students learn to think critically and work skillfully in settings such as mental health agencies, day care centers, special education classrooms, support agencies for persons with developmental delays, convalescent hospitals and many other social service settings. They will be able to use psychological and developmental principles to understand conflict, to generate alternate responses, to act on educated judgment, to modify contexts to bring about desired changes while recognizing the dignity of persons, to promote human welfare and to maintain scholarly integrity. The department integrates a solid theoretical base with applied experiences in all programs.
Interesting courses I might take:
- CEDP 402 - Behavior Modification - Behavior modification provides an in-depth exposure to the principles, concepts and procedures from both behavioral and cognitive theories as applied to individuals, couples and families, organizational groups and community settings.
- CEDP 315 - Psychology of Human Relations - Helps develop your understanding and skill in interpersonal relationships needed for professional consultation and/or counseling.
- CEDP 324 - Human Learning - A study of human learning emphasizing conditions for acquisition, learning structures, learning sets, levels of learning and measurement.
