Psychology is a social science, generally, that focuses on the systematic study of behavior and social interaction. Our students of psychology gain insight into how people think, feel, act and relate to others. They learn how to gather and analyze behavioral data and how to conduct research with human participants, as well as interpersonal skills that are useful in a variety of workplaces.

"After declaring a Bachelor of Arts in psychology with a minor in sociology, I was exposed to a wealth of information and experience from countless faculty members at SXU. From the Racial and Ethnic Relations course to Individual and Group Counseling course to Statistics for the Social Sciences course at Saint Xavier University, I grew to understand society, individuals and myself."
