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.

When you major in international studies, you learn about foreign languages and cultures at the source. The program is designed to help majors better understand the times we live in and develop the capacity to function effectively within them. As a major, you'll take courses in history, political science, economics, the humanities, modern language, and international studies itself.

The minor in philosophy provides a chance to engage in open-ended, critical thinking about basic ideas in ethics, politics, religion and science, both in relation to current debates and as they have developed since the beginnings of philosophy in ancient Greece.

Philosophy originally meant the pursuit of any sort of knowledge or wisdom. During the 2,000 years since its inception in ancient Greece, philosophy has gradually divided into more specialized academic disciplines, each with its own subject matter and evolving methods of inquiry. Today, philosophy seeks to clarify the boundaries, fundamental assumptions and relationships of the natural and social sciences, as well as mathematics, law, medicine and theology. Philosophers are also concerned with the logical norms implied in clear and critical thinking and the ethical norms involved in problems of personal and political behavior.

Norwich’s Philosophy program offers courses in logic and general ethics, the applied ethics of various professions (medicine and nursing, business, the military, criminal justice and environmental studies), and a four-semester sequence on the history of philosophy. For a minor in philosophy, a student must complete six courses in philosophy with a grade of “C” or better.

Have you ever wanted to travel or conduct business with other cultures? A major in International Business would provide a great education for you to meet your goals.

International business studies the markets, people, and places involved in trade, commerce, and exchanges throughout the world. Students in this field are challenged to think globally and to develop an awareness of the cultural, political, and economic aspects of business.

Through a comprehensive approach to project-based learning led by expert faculty, a degree in International Business will help you develop a framework to increase your cultural literacy and broaden your perspective. Flexible elective credits allow you to customize your degree through adding a minor, creating the highly specialized skill-set that employers seek.

The sociology minor provides students with a distinctive social perspective on the realities of everyday life and the relationships within societies, institutions, organizations, and groups.

Students are introduced to methods of social science research and the social, cultural, and political dimensions of domestic and global issues. Students are also exposed to the interstices between sociology and other social and behavioral sciences.

Norwich was founded on the idea that people learn better by doing, and our students who pursue an engineering degree never shy away from getting their hands dirty.

The program stresses lab work, internships and a focus on solving real-world problems. Majors are encouraged to form relationships with colleagues and professors in other departments and universities to better understand the dynamics of real-world projects. Whether you join an Antarctica-based science expedition or work to improve a NASA minisatellite, increase the efficiency of solar panels, or revive a hydropowered electrical plant, you'll apply the knowledge you gain in the classroom to solving grand challenges of the 21st century.
