Psychological Science & Human Services

You're fascinated by the human mind.

As a psychology major at Lander, you'll delve into these subjects and more, with a curriculum that provides much more than an arsenal of psychological knowledge. You'll learn to think logically, critically and objectively as you study theories and findings in the areas of human development, emotion, cognition, behavior and psychopathology.

Human services is a newer field that connects psychology and sociology and focuses on how to help specific populations in the realm of social services.  The human services major blends applied psychology and sociology courses and exposes students to knowledge about abuse and counseling while understanding different populations.
