Psychology

HBU offers a quality undergraduate psychology program. The program sets high and clear expectations, promotes active learning, and provides students with timely feedback on their progress. Students who major in psychology can expect a balanced curriculum that includes a required introductory course, methodology courses, advanced content courses and an integrating capstone experience. Students who minor in psychology can expect to take core courses that are foundational to each discipline. Furthermore, the elective offerings within the psychology minor allow students to tailor their learning in a way that best complements their chosen major. By providing multiple settings for learning -- classroom, computer laboratory, informal and formal contacts with faculty and peers, field placement, externships and co-curricular activities (e.g. Psi Chi honor society) -- the undergraduate psychology program produces graduates who think scientifically, speak and write well, and respect and appreciate others.
 


Advantages and Opportunities

Course work in Psychology provides much of the liberal arts foundation you will receive at HBU, a foundation that will prepare you for many different career fields by teaching you interpersonal, analytical, and critical-thinking skills that will be required in any professional environment. But more importantly, these courses will lead you to a higher wisdom in understanding life, people, and the world around you.


After Graduation

The bachelor’s degree with a major in psychology does not prepare the graduate for immediate placement as a professional psychologist. Consequently, students who wish to become professional psychologists must be prepared to do graduate study. HBU offers a variety of different graduate degrees in Psychology that prepare students for a variety of areas within the field of Psychology.
