Department of Psychology
If you are curious about why people behave the way they do, consider studying psychology—the science of mind and behavior. Among the questions that psychologists study are:
- Why are some people willing to help strangers, while others aren’t?
- Can training help us learn more from our classes?
- Do men and women differ in what they look for in a potential mate?
- Do docile babies grow up to be easy-going adults?
Psychology students at Dominican have extensive undergraduate research opportunities as well as classroom training in understanding human behavior, critical thinking and making arguments. Our students are well prepared for graduate programs in fields like social work, clinical psychology and art therapy, and for rewarding careers in law, banking, social services, business and many other fields.
