What is Psychology at WVU like?
Psychology is the science of behavior. Courses convey the principles, methods and theories necessary for a better understanding of human and animal behaviors.
Studying Psychology allows you to work toward a liberal arts degree rather than a specialized degree that prepares you for a specific type of job. The major allows you to increase your intrapersonal and interpersonal understanding and develop problem-solving, project management and information literacy skills.
Typically, students tailor their schedules according to their future career paths, which generally fall into three categories: graduate studies, a career applying principles of psychology to human problems or a career in a non-related field.
