Psychology is the empirical study of mental and behavioral processes. Our faculty are committed to outstanding education and research in many of the subfields of the discipline, including cognition, learning, biopsychology, developmental, social, clinical and health psychology.
We believe we have one of the strongest undergraduate programs in the country. Our challenging curriculum provides a methodological and theoretical background in the core areas of psychology. Our program combines exceptional classroom instruction with hands-on learning opportunities, such as conducting research or completing internships in the community. Indeed, almost all of our majors complete an independent research project, internship, or both. With a degree from Furman, you’ll have the knowledge and hands-on experience to excel in graduate school or the job market.
