In pursuing this science of the mind, 心理学, we discover how to decipher the world around us and, 当然, our world within. 这样做, we gain a completely different idea of the things we know best, until every subject we study acquires a new dimension – as do we.
Why Study 心理学 at Trinity?
Trinity College’s 心理学 Department is large enough to offer its students a wide range 当然s – from 神经科学 to clinical 心理学 – yet small enough to allow undergraduates to pursue their own research interests or work with our faculty on their research projects. The department’s outstanding faculty members take full advantage of Trinity’s location in a capital city by encouraging internships in the many businesses, health care institutions, government agencies or non-profit organizations in greater 哈特福德. Many 心理学 courses include opportunities to link academic material with experiential learning in the 哈特福德 community. 此外, the majority of 心理学 students study aboard, in a variety of places, enriching their intellectual and interpersonal perspectives and helping them become good global citizens. In 2015, Trinity’s 心理学 Department was ranked number 7 out of 50 great small colleges for a bachelor’s in 心理学 (http://onlinePsychologydegree.info/small-colleges-bachelors-Psychology/)
It is just such experiences – in combination with a strong liberal arts education – that prepares Trinity 心理学 majors for a variety of future paths: counseling youths, teaching 心理学 at the college level, managing a research project on early childhood, or directing the patient relations department of a major teaching hospital or corporation.
Trinity’s 心理学 Department emphasizes interdisciplinary study and collaborates with other departments, including anthropology, 生物学, educational studies, 工程, 神经科学, 哲学, and public policy to provide 心理学 majors with an integrated understanding of the complex issues that confront us in the world today. Each year the department offers more than 40 different courses ranging among Cognitive 心理学, Child Development, 社会 & Cognitive Neuroscience, Developmental Psychopathology and Community 心理学. Complementing such diversity is a coherent structure of core courses, advanced courses, and specialized courses. At every level, students gain critical experiences in research techniques and laboratory procedures. All students complete a senior capstone experience, with the option of pursing a research project and writing a senior thesis under the supervision of a faculty member in the 心理学 Department.
