Major and Minor

Psychology Major

Understanding behavior is the central challenge of Psychology. Psychology majors at Bradley become proficient in understanding and applying the scientific method to the study of behavior. Majors also learn how scientific findings address social and behavioral problems. The curriculum at Bradley is structured so that students have ample flexibility to craft a program of study that reflects their interests and goals.

Neuroscience Minor

Neuroscience is the scientific study of neural processes, structures, and behavior. It is excellent preparation for students considering medical and health-related professions, for those interested in working in biomedical research and/or for students planning to pursue clinical or experimental psychology graduate degrees.

Honors Program

Honors research in Psychology permits students to actively pursue questions and interests in a supportive and collaborative environment.  The end result, an honors thesis, is a substantial achievement.  Recent graduates of the honors program have been accepted into excellent graduate programs in clinical psychology, industrial-organizational psychology, school psychology, neuropsychology, and other allied fields.

Honors research in the Psychology Department is supported by the Daniel J. Elias Endowment Fund.
