Biopsychology Overview

Students majoring in Biopsychology will learn to understand the biological mechanisms of behavior and psychological processes. The Biopsychology major will benefit students interested in pursuing a post- baccalaureate degree (M.S. or Ph.D.) in Biopsychology and related fields, students interested in attending medical school, and students interested in academic or professional careers requiring a solid foundation in science.
Our program will provide intellectual and practical engagement though internships, participation in conferences, travel, and research opportunities. The Biopsychology major requires a total of 41 semester hours. Courses are divided into two categories: Core Courses with a Required Research Component and Electives. Given the interdisciplinary nature of the major, no minor is offered.
The department has well-equipped laboratory facilities housed with other departments in our new Center for Science and Business building. The department human experimentation facilities include group processes rooms, as well as individual performance testing areas. We also have an animal laboratory.
