Psychology without a couch? Psychology with statistics, research methods, data and the brain? Welcome to the undergraduate psychology major at Western Carolina University where psychology is taught as a science. Our aim is to help students learn to think critically and to base decisions on evidence. These are skills that are useful in dealing with people in a wide variety of settings.
