Do you think that a woman's choice of footgear reflects:

boutton406 Personality?
button326 Health?
button301 Wealth?
button208 Cultural Expectations?

 

If you think that all four may influence choice, then you are thinking like a psychologist.

Psychology is a scientific discipline that pushes us to ask questions about every sort of behavior - behaviors we can observe directly and those for which we need specialized instruments and techniques.

In your classes at Russell Sage, you learn about what psychologists have hypothesized about behavior, the methods they have designed, and the conclusions they have drawn. You will also study critiques of psychological findings and the missteps psychologists have taken.

In your classes you will be challenged to question psychological findings - to think of counter hypotheses and to design experiments to check the conclusions drawn. Whether you are studying choice behavior in adolescent girls, in stock traders or in mice you will be participating in the search for psychological principles and their applications.
