Psychology is the study of mental processes and the relationship between these processes and behavior. Psychology researchers have a variety of perspectives on mental processes and behavior and a variety of methods for investigating these topics. The Georgia Institute of Technology School of Psychology undergraduate curriculum provides a broad-based research focused approach to the science of psychology. Courses in areas such as mathematics, biology, and chemistry are required in addition to a strong foundation in psychology courses. The curriculum also emphasizes methodological skills, so students learn the fundamentals of how to ask and answer questions about mental processes and behavior. These skills generalize to many non-psychology work settings.

The School of Psychology offers a variety of opportunities for undergraduates interested in psychology.
