About the Program

Psychology opens the door to one of the most challenging and rewarding professional fields today. Psychology students learn the necessary skills to assist people in improving their mental health. They also gain knowledge and abilities that are valued in many other fields, such as business and politics. 

Sociology applies the methods of social science to understand how broader social forces influence our thoughts, beliefs and behavior. Students may select from a broad range of courses related to contemporary issues and problems; inter-group relations, popular culture, social movements and social change, modernity and post-modernity, family patterns and relationships, sexuality, crime and deviance, environmental and social problems, globalization, and field experiences.
