Joint Majors

Joint Major in Psychology and Linguistics

This major is designed to introduce students to fundamental aspects of the behavioral study of language, and in particular how an interdisciplinary approach to language from the psychological and linguistic perspectives inform language usage. The major is designed so that students receive introductory breadth in the study of both psychology and linguistics before focusing on the study of language and cognition. After acquiring basic knowledge of the subject matter and methodologies from each discipline, students will take elective courses which focus on specific issues in language and cognition. The major will culminate in a semester of Directed Study in which students will engage in a supervised research project on a particular topic or issue within the domain of language and cognition.

Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience & Behavioral Biology

The Department of Psychology participates in the interdisciplinary program in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology (NBB). It is an inter-departmental undergrad program offering a Bachelor of Science and combining the expertise, enthusiasm, and commitment of a large and diverse group of faculty from many departments. The NBB major combines behavioral biology with the study of how the nervous system controls body functions and cognition. Using the concepts of evolution as a unifying theme, the major represents a unique interdisciplinary synthesis of the fields of Neuroscience and Behavior and provides a breadth and focus not found in traditional Biology, Psychology, Biopsychology, Neuroscience, or Anthropology programs.
