Exploring Thought and Behavior One Individualized
Project at a Time
What motivates people’s thoughts and behavior, and how does this apply to interactions in our everyday lives? You will explore these questions firsthand in Arcadia’s Psychology program, where professors’ doors are always open and where compelling theories about human thought and behavior come alive through hands-on research.
It all centers around the program’s focus on “evidence-based” (or research-based) practice, the recognized standard in psychology and other health-care professions.. What does this mean for you? Unmatched opportunities to collect and evaluate your own evidence… exciting possibilities to present and even publish your findings … and well-grounded people skills that will distinguish you in any career.
