Psychology is the science of human behavior and experience that seeks to provide answers to some of the most interesting and difficult questions humankind has asked.
Psychology is one of the most versatile degrees offered. A bachelor's degree in psychology prepares students for a wide variety of career areas, many outside the specific field of psychology, including:
- administrative jobs (office, healthcare or community program management, etc.)
- business management and sales
- public relations and public affairs
- social services
