Psychology is the science of mind, brain, and behavior in humans and animals. The scope of the field encompasses all aspects of cognition (thinking), affect (feelings), and behavior with the dual goals of understanding the human experience and using this scientific knowledge to improve lives.


The bachelor of science in psychology degree programs at Aquinas College emphasize acquisition of knowledge and skills in the scientific method and the application of these to solving problems and helping people.

I love being a psychology major at AQ because my professors are so welcoming. I truly believe that they care about my future and I appreciate everything that they do for me!
