Psychology is the science of human behavior. As a field, it attempts to develop technologies that will help understand the dynamics of human behavior as a means of developing a profession that will promote human welfare. As such, the undergraduate program at East Central University prepares its students through classwork, student professional organizations such as Psi Chi, field trips, assisting the faculty in professional endeavors such as research and application, and close relationships with the faculty to help understand and get to know, on a broad basis, the field of psychology. This training prepares the student to work at an entry level in the following areas: mental health clinics, hospitals, counseling centers, corrections, and many other areas including being prepared to enter graduate school.
