Psychology studies all aspects of human behavior, including how we sense and perceive the world, how desires and feelings affect what we do, and how we learn and remember and create ideas. These recurring mental activities constitute our personalities and attitudes, and when different personalities interact, they are changed. To study these varied behaviors, psychology draws upon the knowledge acquired by most other academic disciplines. Hence, you will most likely enjoy and do well in psychology if you have varied interests, and have studied many of the subjects available in high school, including math and science.

Why study psychology at Northwest College? At Northwest College you can study everything in the first two years of a bachelor's degree program. Many psychology classes at most universities are large because psychology is a popular major, but at Northwest you will have small classes offering personalized attention from faculty who have worked in a variety of institutions, and you can interact with other students. A research course during final term will pull together many components of your other psychology courses and give you research skills needed in advanced work.

Understanding of psychological goals, which include describing, explaining, predicting and shaping human behavior. Understanding of the many varied psychology concepts and theories and research findings used to describe and explain behavior. Abilities to describe, interpret, and evaluate research done by other...
