Why Major in Psychology?
A psychology background can be useful in the arts. Understanding perceptual processes, individual differences in emotion and mental health can help students plan and create works that speak to various issues or feelings. The use of creative works can be very effective therapeutic tools. Psychology majors may work as performers, as administrators or as therapists.
