Psychology is the study of human behavior and thought. Most psychologists in academic settings are committed to the scientific study of such matters, as are the faculty in the Rice Department of Psychological Sciences.
Psychological Sciences goes beyond disciplinary boundaries and represents the scientific study of the mind and behavior from multiple levels of analysis. It is among the most popular majors at Rice. Psychological Sciences majors often go on to graduate schools, medical schools, and law schools.
