The WNMU Psychology program is a generalist program, covering the wide range of topics in psychology including courses in the major subfields and many specialized areas. We emphasize the scientific nature of psychology. Our courses highlight scholarly research, theories, and applications whilefostering critical thinking. The curriculum prepares students with the knowledge and skills necessary to be educated consumers of psychological research and communicate effectively.
The baccalaureate degree provides students with a solid foundation in a liberal arts education, as well as breadth and depth within the field of psychology. The psychology major prepares students for advanced academic study, professional training, and employment in a wide range of fields, including health and human services, research, and law, among many others. Students are required to complete a “capstone” experience in psychology which can provide a bridge to their professional life after WNMU. Options for capstone experiences include elective coursework, internships, or sponsored research with a faculty member. A minor is required of all psychology majors. Common choices include Criminal Justice, Sociology, Chemical Dependency, Coaching, Computer Science, and Political Science.
The psychology minor is a great supplement to other majors in that it enhances understanding of human relationships, interactions, and behavior. Both the major and the minor are flexible, allowing students to customize the degree to meet their individual educational goals.
