Psychology (BA)

In the Psychology BA degree program at ASU's Tempe campus, students use scientific methodology to explore fundamental questions about the brain, mind and behavior. Students work with faculty and other psychology majors in a collaborative, diverse environment in coursework, research and other engagement activities to explore such fascinating questions as whether robots can explain how we field in baseball; what effects stress and emotions have on adolescent adjustment; how humans recognize and regulate emotions; how body image relates to eating disorders; how chronic stress affects the brain; how evolution shapes our choice of partner; and what the physical and psychological consequences of substance abuse might be in adolescents.
