Why Study Psychology at NSC

Psychologists want to know about everything. From the practical puzzle of persuading others to the enduring enigma of consciousness, psychology is looking for answers. Equipped with the powerful lens of science, psychologists continue to solve some of life's most compelling riddles. From artificial intelligence, to happiness, to the ever-present battleground of discrimination, psychologists promote our understanding of issues affecting our day-to-day lives.

If you choose to pursue a degree in psychology at Nevada State, you can expect the quality of education normally associated with an elite and every expensive private college. You will receive personalized attention from dedicated faculty every step of the way to your degree.

Relative to the B.A. degree in psychology, students who earn the B.S. degree receive more advanced training in research methodology and statistical analysis along with a more thorough understanding of the natural sciences.
