When asked why they want to major in psychology or human services, most students respond, "Because I want to help people."

While psychology and human services are certainly helping professions, in order to help others you must also be grounded in the science of these disciplines. You must be able to approach and gather information, conceptualize problems, understand different populations and their needs, and arrive at reasonable conclusions about what is needed to change problematic behavior.

Our Psychology and Human Services programs at Lander are designed to provide students with these skills and prepare them for rewarding careers in a variety of settings.
