To many people, human behavior seems unpredictable and often difficult to understand. To a student of psychology, there are clues to be found in personalities, abilities, influences, and motivations. Here at Ball State’s Department of Psychological Science, we offer undergraduate and graduate programs in psychology that lead to fascinating careers, a deeper understanding of others, and greater awareness of one’s own behavior and motivations.
