A major in psychology at Webster Geneva gives you the opportunity to study questions about human behavior and mental life ranging from how you see the world to why you fall in love. You will study the great controversies: nature versus nurture, free will, consciousness, the brain/mind dichotomy, human difference and social and cross-cultural perspectives. You will explore different branches within psychology including biological, clinical, cognitive, developmental, social and cultural.

This solid academic foundation provides you with ways to begin to make sense of your world. As you develop and apply problem-solving skills your instruction will be personalized. This will help you to think analytically and communicate clearly and persuasively as you build competencies for a specific career or area of interest.

You will join an active psychology club, be informed about psychology events, socialize with others and share your experiences and expectations. You will combine your studies with subjects from other disciplines as you prepare to become a global citizen.

You will also have the opportunity to join the Psychology and Society Group (PSG), which brings together the research community within the Department of Psychology and Professional Counseling. In this group you will learn about and participate in ongoing research projects and partnerships with other academic institutions and the local community. In addition, you will be able to learn about and participate in ongoing research projects in the Department such as the Employee Wellbeing Project (WellPro).
