Study how the brain influences our behavior, how our senses and minds perceive the world, and how we learn and remember.
Choose a concentration designed for your career goals.
Build relationships with classmates and professors. You’ll find a warm, collaborative community that supports your success instead of competing for opportunities.
At Roosevelt, you can also participate in faculty members’ research teams. You’ll address the experimental foundations of psychology.
Apply your knowledge to help others in the community. You’ll volunteer as part of service-learning classes, and you can explore more extensive field placements and internships.
At Roosevelt, you’ll become more aware of social inequalities, discover why you should care, and develop compassion and empathy.
Motivated students can apply to the Honors Program and dive deeper into psychology.
Through the accelerated track, you can get a head start on the master’s program in clinical psychology. You can graduate with both degrees at less cost than in traditional tracks.
Study psychology abroad at the University of Sussex and the Danish Institute for Study. Roosevelt will help you transfer your course work so it counts toward your degree.
