Psychology

Are you curious about why people think, feel, and behave the way they do? Would you like to know how nature and nurture work together to make you the person you are? If you're intrigued by the workings of the mind, consider majoring in Psychology.

As a Marymount Psychology major, you will be exposed to a wide range of areas, including development, abnormal psychology, and the biological bases of behavior, social psychology, and counseling. Marymount’s learner-centered classes emphasize critical thinking, inquiry, and research.

Graduates from MU’s Psychology program are prepared to work in human service and mental health agencies, business settings, and to perform research for companies or organizations. Many of our graduates also go on to further study in Psychology, Counseling, and other fields.
