|Description:||Psychology is the study of mental processes and behaviour. A degree in Psychology focuses on individual processes as well as the individual in a social context. A Psychology degree can help students who want to work with people by introducing them to the human psyche and why individuals do what they do.
Augustana’s psychology courses are popular given the interesting topics, excellent faculty, and small class sizes. It is important to realize that obtaining a Psychology degree is NOT a one-way track to becoming a psychologist, psychiatrist, or counsellor. Although that is an option for many students who decide to go on to graduate studies, a Psychology degree can provide opportunities in many alternate career areas as well.
