Psychology adopts a rigorous, scientific approach to understanding behavior - an approach that provides the solid foundation necessary for admission to graduate programs and/or for immediate employment in a myriad of service-based occupations. In addition to courses that introduce students to the major theoretical perspectives in psychology, the major also requires skill-based courses in statistics and research methods and the use of statistical analysis software programs to help the student master the basics of designing empirical research studies.

Global Studies

Understanding our interconnected world

This interdisciplinary program allows students to foster a greater understanding of the challenges that we face as citizens of a complex, globalized and interconnected world.

Animal Studies

The animal studies courses in the major emphasize critical and creative thinking in the areas of: animal behavior, the animal-human bond, animal-human interactions, animals in service, ethical standards of practice, ethical treatment, environmental impact, training and handling methods, and current events, as these topics relate to canines, equines, farm animals, felines and exotics, and wildlife. Breadth of knowledge is critical in the animal studies major.


Exposure to other peoples’ languages and cultures is an enriching experience that benefits all students, regardless of professional interests or fields of specialization.  In fact, double majoring or minoring in a foreign language, particularly Spanish due to its pervasiveness in the United States, increases future job prospects and feasibility of graduate work.


Courses in sociology emphasize the principles of social organization and conflict; a comparative analysis of societies and social institutions; the role of culture in shaping human behavior; and principles of social interaction. Students develop a fundamental understanding of sociological theories and research methods, as well as breadth in substantive areas of the discipline.

Applied Ethics

Applied Ethics and Philosophy: Put Your Thinking and Values to Work

Wilson’s program in applied ethics helps you develop the knowledge and skills necessary to put your thinking and values to work in business, law, government, science and more.


The mathematics curriculum emphasizes theory and application of mathematical principles. Obtaining a degree in mathematics within the framework of a liberal arts curriculum strengthens the student’s understanding of the interrelationship between the sciences, the social sciences, and the humanities.

Studio Art

About the Program
