THERE TO HELP: Sultan Magruder ’12 says, “Professor John Mills was very instrumental in my success overall at IUP. He provided important feedback on my work, as well as encouragement in my endeavors, graduate interviews, and conference presentations.”
The Reach conference held on campus in May 2014 gave Shannon
Kovalchick, Psychology-Sociology double major, a chance to present her
research to a professional audience.
Those who choose to study psychology are often curious about why people behave the way they do. They may want to help people solve problems, be very motivated to understand the human brain and how it relates to behavior, or want to understand the similarities between people and non-human animals. Psychology majors learn how to design and conduct research and evaluate its results.
In the BA program in Psychology at IUP, you’ll choose at least one course from each of six core areas of study and at least two electives. Some of the classes you may choose include Child Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, Experimental Social Psychology, Physiological Psychology, Conditioning and Learning, Psychology of Women, Drugs and Behavior, Forensic Psychology, and Industrial/Organizational Psychology.
You’ll also be required to choose a minor or concentration in another discipline. Psychology allows you complete freedom to choose any minor concentration that best suits your interests or furthers your career plans. Most of our present majors complete minors in Biology, Human Development and Family Science, Educational Psychology, and Sociology.
