Program Overview

Psychology at Bryant

What you learn from studying the basics of psychology can help you in any field and organization. In business, for instance, you can explore what traits many great leaders have that makes them appealing to others or what effect a product's packaging has on a consumer's decision to purchase.

Psychological study helps you learn to creatively and critically evaluate information about human behavior. You need to have a solid understanding of human values and behavior when considering personal or career-related decisions. Motivation, satisfaction, productivity, and learning are all affected by your beliefs, needs, and wants. For most humans, these are easy to predict.

Bryant's Psychology concentration and minor allow you to complement many courses of study with the study of human behavior. You will understand how to apply basic research methods in psychology, including research design, research ethics, data analysis, and interpretation. You will be able to ethically apply psychological principles to personal, social, and organizational issues. You will be well-prepared for an entry-level career or graduate study.

Bryant also offers a major in Applied Psychology.
