UNDERSTANDING HUMAN BEHAVIOR requires curiosity, the capacity for self-reflection, and a basic grasp of the tools of quantitative and qualitative research. It calls for an appreciation of biology and evolutionary theory as well as an analysis of the complex environmental factors facing modern humans. The perspectives of other disciplines such as anthropology, economics, and history are also important to any understanding of individuals in society. The GMC Psychology Program is structured to provide a strong grounding in contemporary psychological theory and practice, while at the same time, permitting ample exploration of these other important contributing disciplines.
