What is Psychology?

Ever wonder why that certain smell brings you back to childhood? Or why you get dizzy after a ride on the merry-go-round? Or how Mozart could compose operas before the age of 10? Discover the answers as a psychology major at UC Davis.

Majoring in Psychology

Psychology is an interdisciplinary program that examines both the social and scientific bases of behavior, and as a premier research institution, UC Davis is home to many leading researchers in the field. In humans, animals and computer models, and from neurons to relationships to cultures, the science of psychology is focused on understanding how, when and why we do what we do. Psychology majors from UC Davis are prepared to enter fields such as business, government or personnel work, or to pursue higher levels of education.
