As a member of the social sciences, psychology seeks to understand the causes and consequences of human and animal behavior by employing the methods of scientific inquiry. Given this general orientation, the psychology program at North Central College provides students with a sound background in the methods used to understand behavior. Students receive an overview of several key areas within the discipline: Developmental, Biological, Cognitive/Learning, Personality/Abnormal, Social/Cultural Diversity and Applied. In addition, students explore at least one topic in depth through a capstone experience: senior seminar, senior thesis, internship or community engagement project. 

For additional programs and courses in this department, see Psychology and Neuroscience .
