Psychology

Nature or nurture? What does it mean to be human? How do we learn new things, form relationships with each other, or develop from childhood to old age? If questions about how we develop, behave and think intrigue you, study psychology at Northwestern.

Northwestern’s psychology department offers 4 study options:

Faculty

It’s in the nature of our psychology professors to nurture students. Experienced researchers and committed Christians, they’ll mentor you as you learn the place of faith in asking and answering questions surrounding mind, body and soul. Psychology professor Dr. Jennifer Feenstra recently received a Fulbright Scholarship and spent a year teaching and researching abroad.

Research

Mind research? We hope not, because every psychology major is required to conduct a senior research project, working one-on-one with a psychology professor. Graduates report this research and writing experience is excellent prep for grad school.
