PSYCHOLOGY

RESEARCH HUMAN BEHAVIOR.

The philosophy to “learn by doing” drives the psychology curriculum at Norwich University. As a psychology major, you’ll work with faculty to create a research project of your own design.

MAJOR IN PSYCHOLOGY

Norwich has one of the few undergraduate psychology programs in the country that requires an original research project as a senior thesis, encouraging psychology majors to explore and research topics of interest and relevance to their chosen fields. Through this project, majors learn the importance of scientific method through graduate-level research, which involves data collection, literature review, conducting an experiment with human subjects, and writing and presenting a thesis on a wide range of topics, from stereotyping to threat perception.

Whether your goal is to be a teacher, advertising copywriter, personnel administrator, or clinical psychologist, the Norwich University psychology program will help you better understand and articulate principles of human behavior.

Majors are encouraged to explore psychological principles outside the classroom through internships and academic organizations such as the Psi Chi and Pi Gamma Mu honor societies.

MINOR IN PSYCHOLOGY

Norwich also offers several options for a minor in psychology. Check out the curriculum for details.
