Psychological & Brain Sciences

As the science concerned with the study of behavior, Psychological & Brain Sciences includes such areas as learning and memory, motivation, sensory processes and perception, biological bases of behavior, social interactions, aging and development, personality, and clinical and affective psychology.

Undergraduate study in Psychological & Brain Sciences provides a sound basis for later professional graduate training at the master's or PhD level in Psychological & Brain Sciences. The psychological and brain sciences major may also provide important intellectual tools for those considering careers in management, law, education, social work, public relations and health-related professions. We also offer a psychological and brain sciences minor for students who are interested in this area but pursuing other subjects.
