At Stephens, you’ll begin your studies with a broad introduction to psychology before diving into specific tracts such as abnormal psychology, forensics or counseling. Our students get a strong foundation in math and science and learn to analyze and solve case studies using theories from cognitive, social or educational psychology. Students also examine issues in gender, forensic and physiological psychology, and conduct original research.
Research is a critical component to the study of psychology and human development.
At Stephens, you’ll have unique opportunities to study psychology in a variety of settings. Work alongside our education majors to study child development in our on-campus lab school or investigate human behavior in a communitywide study.
Our small faculty to student ratio ensures you’ll have lots of chances to help conduct research and customize studies that meet your specific interests.
