Psychology is among the most popular academic programs, both at Casper College and nationwide. The reason is simple: It’s a wide ranging field that explores one of the world’s most fascinating subjects — behavior and mental processes. It’s also a pre-professional area with countless potential career opportunities.
Many students choose psychology as a major or minor field of study because they want to pursue eventual graduate training in psychology or a related field. Others want to show employers that they are interested in people and interpersonal skills. Still others find that psychology is an excellent complement to majors such as addictionology, sociology, social work, biology, health professions, business and communicating arts.
