Psychology concerns the study and understanding of thoughts, feelings, and behavior. The courses offered by the department are directed toward the study and appreciation of the complex factors that influence behavior and covert experience in people and other animals. Psychology attempts to describe these factors with objectivity and responsibility. Studying psychology has a twofold function: (1) to further the intellectual development of the student; (2) to enhance preparation for such professions as clinical practice, teaching, research, social science, medicine, law, social work, and organizational consulting and leadership. -- Occidental College Course Catalog
