“Most students who choose our psychology degree have a love of people and a desire to help.”– Mark Hager, Ph.D.

How do we think? Why do we behave in certain ways – why do we fidget, blush, or lie? How does the brain affect our attraction to others, our choice of music or our political leanings? Psychology, the study of the human mind, explores these mysteries to help us better understand ourselves.
At Menlo, we provide a strong foundation for an undergraduate psychology degree through a general psychology curriculum while exploring the most current psychology issues, from sports psychology to human sexuality. Psychology can prepare you for a multitude of career paths, including graduate school, law school, teaching, coaching, human services work or business. Whatever you choose, when you leave Menlo, you’ll be ready.
Visiting from one of China’s oldest universities, Dr. Zhi-jin Hou is teaching psychology courses, helping students toward undergraduate psychology degrees, lecturing in other departments’ classes, and including Menlo students in her research.
