The Psychology Major is a program that establishes the preparatory foundations for study and application in the "science of behavior and mental processes." Students graduate with the critical thinking skills and knowledge for advanced graduate study in psychology as well as for professions in the applied liberal arts.
The Psychology Major emphasizes the scientific, experimental approach to the study of behavior and mental processes. The emphasis on psychology's science-based identity is universal in psychology with the goal to expose students to a broad base of psychological theory, methods, research, and application. To this end, the Psychology Major at CSUMB fulfills all ten recommendations by the American Psychological Association: Board of Educational Affairs, "Undergraduate Psychology Major Learning Goals and Outcomes: A Report ."
