The Psychology major at Sampoerna University gives students the opportunity to explore the complex world of the mind and brain—how the mind and brain evolve from infancy to old age, the environmental influences that shape our behavior, and the impact of brain disorders such as autism and Alzheimer’s disease.

You will gain new insights in areas of cognitive science and cognitive neuroscience, including performance, sensation, perception, language, thinking, decision making, and judgment.
