Regardless of career aspirations, knowledge of psychology can provide excellent preparation for anyone who has a fundamental interest in the behavior, thinking, and feelings of humans and animals. Students who study psychology go on to have careers not only as professional psychologists, therapists, or researchers, but also may enter fields such as law, medicine, business, or education. With a faculty that is actively involved in research and a sophisticated physiological and experimental research laboratory, students have the opportunity to pursue independent study and research.
