According to the University of Arkansas, "The Department of Psychological Science offers a major leading to a Bachelor of Arts in psychology. Psychologists are the scientists of human behavior and mental processes. They approach these areas from a variety of perspectives.
Clinical psychologists seek to identify the causes of abnormal behavior and to change these behaviors so their clients can live more satisfying and rewarding lives. Cognitive psychologists are interested in how knowledge and behavior are acquired, retained, and retrieved. Developmental psychologists study physical, cognitive, and social changes that occur throughout an individual's life. Neuroscientists are concerned with the biological bases of behavior. Social psychologists investigate Social psychologists study our thoughts and feelings about ourselves and other people. Each of these perspectives is represented by members of the faculty in the Fulbright College Department of Psychological Science.
The Department of Psychological Science is one of the largest and most productive departments in the university in many ways. Our faculty members are active researchers who bring their scientific excitement and curiosity into the classroom. In addition the faculty is deeply committed to providing individualized training to our students, which is accomplished through experience in a faculty member's lab, or perhaps doing an honors project. We are one of the largest undergraduate majors, and our graduates pursue graduate training in many areas, including counseling, psychology, business, law, and medicine. Other graduates enter the workforce in diverse areas, including human and social services, business, banking, and non-profit organizations."
