Understanding your world often begins with an understanding of yourself and of the people around you. The Department of Psychology at Meredith College will try to help you to gain a better understanding of yourself and of others, as well as helping you to acquire a basic understanding of the concepts, skills and methods that make up psychology, the scientific study of behavior and mental processes.
The Department of Psychology offers a major in psychology leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree. The program also offers a minor in psychology.
Our curriculum explores neuropsychology, perception and cognition, developmental and gender issues, personality, abnormal behavior and counseling, along with many other areas of study. Among other things, our programs offer you opportunities to:
- contribute to knowledge in psychology by doing research;
- develop leadership skills by helping to organize worthwhile activities;
- gain applied skills and experience through professional and work-related experiences, on and off campus.
A special feature of Meredith's Department of Psychology is the Meredith Autism Program. The "MAP" provides you with the opportunity to learn principles of behavior change and then apply those principles to help young children with autism. Providing undergraduate students an uncommon opportunity to develop professional skills, while providing help to children and families in need, makes the MAP a distinguishing feature of Meredith College and it's Department of Psychology.
