Welcome to Psychology at GVSU!
Students major in psychology for various reasons, and different sets of courses are likely to be appropriate for students with different goals. Students should plan their studies in consultation with an academic advisor early and throughout their college career.
Psychology covers such a broad range of topics that psychologists specialize in many different areas, such as clinical psychology, counseling psychology, developmental psychology, physiological psychology, neuropsychology, industrial-organizational psychology, educational psychology, experimental psychology, cognitive psychology, social psychology, and cross-cultural psychology. The interests and training of the faculty members in the department cover all of these areas, so we are able to offer a wide range of courses in the undergraduate curriculum.
