WELCOME TO THE PSYCHOLOGY HOME PAGE!

Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and mental processes. Psychology is a fascinating field.  Topics of interest include the nervous system, learning and memory, intelligence, language, thought, growth and development, personality, stress/health, psychological disorders, treatments and behavior of people in social settings.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO MAJOR IN PSYCHOLOGY:

To become a psychologist, you must have an advanced degree.  However, you will be able to work in psychology-related areas with an associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degree.  More importantly, psychology fits well with many other fields.  Many of the psychology courses offered at Hill College provide excellent training and skills for employers in any field.
