Psychology at Greenville University

Are you curious about the human mind? Turn your curiosity into a career. Learn why we behave the way we do, how we learn, how we manage conflict, how we understand our own personality and that of others, and how our emotions function. We will help you lay the foundation for a career in people-oriented professions like counseling and other social services, teaching, and basic and applied research fields, and prepare you for graduate study in any of these fields.

In this program, students often:

  • Attend various lectures and symposiums featuring prominent figures in many sub-fields of psychology
  • Travel to the National Museum of Psychology
  • Attend theatrical productions dealing with psychology and spiritual themes.
