Besides satisfying your Social and Behavioral Sciences requirement, and of course being endlessly fascinating, here are some others reasons to think about taking classes in psychology and even pursuing a rewarding degree.
Literally meaning “the study of the mind,” psychology focuses on mental processes and behavior in humans. It’s the science of how people think, feel, act, and interact with their world. There are a number of specialized fields within psychological science, including child psychology, educational psychology, sports psychology, social psychology, comparative psychology, and more. Clinical psychology is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders.
The Psychological Science program at MCC offers students a wide range of courses, educational resources, student activities, and continued education opportunities. Our courses emphasize the scientific study of behavior and mental processes and are designed to help students understand more about themselves and others. We challenge our students to enhance their appreciation of the human condition through open and impartial inquiry. Our diverse faculty also provides students with a variety of approaches and experiences which will help them flourish in a global society.
