University Majors

University of California, Berkeley
Psychology B.A.

The Psychology major attempts to give basic and well-rounded coverage of most of the principal fields of psychology. The areas covered include social, developmental, behavioral neuroscience, comparative, industrial, clinical, and cognitive psychology, learning (human and animal), perception, personality and psycholinguistics. The fact that psychology is so diverse means, however, that all areas of study cannot be represented within the expertise or primary interest of a single faculty or department. That is true at Berkeley where the emphasis is upon empirical research and theoretical analysis of fundamental aspects of animal and human behavior. Since it is our experience that students who are interested in the major often have been exposed to introductory courses with different emphases than are present at Berkeley, prospective majors are strongly urged to examine closely our upper division course offerings to see if they are consonant with their interests in psychology.
