Psychological Studies Major / Minor Requirements

Declaration in or before Summer 2014

Suzi Zimmerman, Major Coordinator (suzizimm@tuj.temple.edu)

Psychological Studies major is designed to promote a broad understanding of human behavior and the affective and cognitive processes that underlie it from the perspective of psychology as a science and a profession. In addition to introductory courses, the study of statistics and research methodology will prepare students to deal with the wealth of research-based knowledge they will encounter as they develop a strong foundation in basic and applied areas of psychology. The research or internship option rounds out the Psychological Studies majors' experiences as they complete advanced electives. Unique to TUJ's Psychological Studies major is its focus on cross-cultural issues, with special emphasis on Asia and the U.S.
