At Florida Tech’s School of Psychology, students start having that impact even while pursuing their studies. Through class discussions of case studies, involvement in research studies on perplexing human behavior, or applied work at the numerous internship sites in the area, students are gaining the knowledge and skills needed to understand and work effectively with people from diverse backgrounds. And students are learning form faculty who themselves are making a difference in the world, be it through their meaningful research, professional services, or community activities. Faculty members model and involve students in this work and serve as supportive and challenging mentors in the students’ growth. A degree in psychology provides you with both the knowledge and the analytic and interpersonal skills needed to understand and interact.
