The most successful Psychology majors have a blend of interpersonal, verbal, and quantitative skills. They share a curiosity about why people behave in strange and unpredictable ways, and are often the ones their friends turn to for help and advice. Many are interested in child development or are fascinated by how the brain works and how we learn and remember things. They are highly motivated and seek out opportunities to do research with faculty, participate in off-campus internships, as well as volunteer for human service positions.
A major in Psychology at Catholic University gives students a thorough background in theory and methodology, and acquaints them with a variety of specializations. Students will find a major in Psychology to be excellent preparation for employment, for graduate study in Psychology, and for graduate study in other fields such as law, medicine, education, social work, or business. The undergraduate Psychology program is designed to meet the needs of students with these different goals.
