Pursue research that matters.

Applying what you learn in statistics and research methods courses, you’ll have opportunities to plan, execute, present, and publish research, rather than just read about it.

Butler student in class

Graduate with a solid foundation.

As a Butler Psychology major, you’ll be part of a department big enough to pursue research that matters, but also small enough to provide our students individual attention and mentoring from full-time faculty. And you’ll graduate with a great foundation in psychology. By department average, our seniors routinely score at the 97th percentile on the Major Field Test in Psychology, a national assessment of professional knowledge.

About two-thirds of Butler Psychology students apply to graduate or professional school, and more than more than 95 percent of them are accepted by at least one doctoral- or masters-level program. 

Our alumni hold successful careers in psychology, health care, law, and service-related professions such as pharmaceutical research and development, computer services, non-profit organizations, human resources, education, and advertising).
