USF’s Department of Psychology designed its curriculum around the foundations of psychological theory and application. By forming a broad understanding of psychology—from social, biological, clinical, cultural, developmental and ethical points of view—students learn to respect the complexities of human behavior. A careful examination of behavioral science in the context of the liberal arts helps students form a comprehensive base for a wide variety of professions or to pursue a graduate degree in many fields of study, including psychology, law, education, and medicine. The major is designed for students who desire to learn the fundamentals of behavioral science within the context of a traditional liberal arts education. Students receive a comprehensive exposure to the foundations of psychological theory and application, and are introduced to laboratory and field research. It prepares students for a wide variety of professional and business careers, and provides the necessary foundation for graduate study in psychology or related disciplines (e.g., social work, counseling, law, education). The Students will: demonstrate the ability to think scientifically about human behavior and psychological processes and to differentiate conclusions based on evidence from those based on speculation or personal belief. evaluate research methods and designs, to distinguish observations from conclusion. demonstrate an understanding of the breadth of psychology, including different areas of psychology, such as the social, abnormal, developmental, personality, and cognitive areas, and different approaches to the study of psychology, such as biological, interpersonal, and sociological approaches. show respect and appreciation for human diversity. interpret the ethical practice of scientific inquiry and apply a consideration of ethical issues and values, both within and beyond the discipline, to their daily lives.
