    Description

    The Psychology curriculum focuses on understanding and applying the scientific method to the problems of the behavioral sciences and of individual and social human behavior. The courses meet the needs of liberal arts students, those entering the helping professions after graduation, as well students who want to continue on and specialize in one of the fields of psychology at the graduate level. Students work closely with faculty advisors to develop a curriculum that is ideally suited to their goals.

    The Psychology major starts with three courses that introduce the field and cover the fundamentals of methods and statistics. From there, students make their class selections from groups of related courses in the five areas of Learning and Cognition, Biological and Comparative Psychology, Personality and Clinical Psychology, Developmental Psychology, and Social and Applied Psychology. An advanced seminar and electives fill out the coursework in the major.

    For the Psychology minor, students start with the same three introductory courses taken by majors. They then take one course in at least four of the five areas as majors, and sufficient electives to earn 30 total credits in the Discipline.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
