Biopsychology

The study of how our brain affects our behavior.

How can a car accident cause depression? How does a prescription drug target neurotransmitters to reduce our levels of anxiety? Why can experiencing fear make our palms sweat? These are the big and fascinating questions at the heart of biopsychology.

Our students learn to understand the biological mechanisms of behavior and psychological processes. Biopsychology benefits students interested in pursuing a post-baccalaureate degree in medical school or academic as well as students interested in professional and health careers that require a solid foundation in science.

Our program provides intellectual and practical engagement though internships, participation in conferences, travel and research opportunities.
