The human mind is a complex thing. Our minds stipulate how we communicate, think, learn, feel, act and react to our surroundings. The psychology program at Indiana Tech is designed to teach you to understand the human brain and apply that knowledge to helping people. If you’re fascinated by studying people and enjoy working with them, then you’re made for a career in psychology. The primary focus of the psychology curriculum is to provide the foundation for a practitioner-oriented career. The specific goals of the program are:

  • To develop an appreciation and understanding of human behavior
  • To illustrate effective use of interpersonal communication skills
  • To provide students with the basic skills needed for an entry level psychology position or for continued professional development, such as graduate study.

The curriculum also includes course requirements intended to prepare students interested in further graduate study and research.
