Philosophy and Goals

The Limestone College Psychology program offers students the opportunity to study the science of human behavior. Psychology courses emphasize theoretical and experimental knowledge of behavior, while some electives, such as counseling courses, focus on the practical application of such knowledge to the improvement of human functioning.

A major in psychology provides for the student a firm knowledge base in psychology through close student-faculty interaction and a current comprehensive curriculum based upon research in the field. Among the goals emphasized throughout the curriculum are the development of interpersonal skills, effective communication through spoken and written means, and a "real world" orientation that encourages the student to apply psychological theory and knowledge to current and practical situations, such as those encountered in the fields of business and education.
