Psychology is the study of behavior and mental processes. Even if you are probably not aware of it, the fact that you are able to read and understand these lines is a complex behavior, that also works under imperfect conditions. Lawrence Tech’s major in psychology prepares you for a variety of careers based on the understanding of human behavior and the mind. Psychology is among the fastest growing professional areas, and Lawrence Tech offers you four pathways into this exciting field: clinical psychology, industrial/organizational psychology, applied & general psychology and pre-med/bio-behavioral psychology.
