Why Study at JCSU?

To be an effective psychologist, you’ll need an understanding of how the brain works and how it interprets the outside world.

At JCSU, your classes in psychology will prepare you to work with a variety of people from varied backgrounds. Our curriculum emphasizes critical thinking and looking at every perspective to analyze a problem.

With the diversity of classes you’ll take in biology, health and sociology, you’ll graduate with an understanding of how the rest of the body and surrounding environment impact the brain and human behavior.

Get involved in on-campus activities and organizations.

Get to know your professors and fellow classmates better by joining the Psi Chi honor society for psychology majors. We induct high-achieving students into the organization every year.

Why choose a liberal arts education?

College graduates with a liberal arts education are vital to our country’s progress.

According to an article from CNN.com, “Why liberal arts matter,” students who graduate from liberal arts universities have a distinct advantage. They will be able to look at any problem and find a creative solution, as well as new opportunities. Rather than a technical degree that focuses on one area, a liberal arts education combines the study of science and math with the arts and humanities.

At JCSU, we emphasize learning new technologies, in addition to different world views and cultures. We teach our students to ask “why?” and to look at any situation from a variety of angles.

Employees who think creatively and communicate well will always be in high demand. As a JCSU student, you’ll improve these skills with every course you take.
