Psychology

USAO’s psychology program employs a diverse range of methodologies to better understand the workings of the human mind. Students receive both a firm foundation in psychological theory well as hands-on experience through original research and service-learning projects.

Emphasizing our interdisciplinary approach to education, psychology students study how our thoughts and behaviors result from an enormously complex web of interacting influences.

Our psychology curriculum includes a wide range of courses covering the discipline’s history and development as well as emerging areas of research in contemporary psychology. Our psychology majors often pursue advanced degrees or find work in social services, business and many other disciplines.
