Psychology Major and Minor

Ever wonder why people behave the way they do? Want to be more of an active participant in bettering the lives of those around you?  If so, psychology may be the right field for you. Lyon College's psychology program emphasizes the science of psychology, educating students on collecting and understanding useful behavioral data. Learning about psychology doesn’t stop in the classroom, advanced students participate in an internship related to their chosen career or prepare a senior research project where they develop, run, and analyze their own original study. In addition, majors will take a team-taught Professional Development course that helps to translate their classroom experiences to job searches and graduate school. Lyon psychology majors have a 90% acceptance rate to graduate school. The major program prepares students to enter a variety of careers, from occupational therapy, mental health, law, to education. Majors in other areas, such as Pre-med and Business, have found a Minor in Psychology to be very useful in preparing for the MCAT and issues related to human resources data. As long as you plan on working for or with human beings for your career, your experiences in the Psychology program at Lyon College will get you there.
