Psychology psyche (breath, spirit, soul)
At Clark's nationally-known School of Psychology, faculty, graduate students and undergraduates search together for insight into questions that have fascinated people since the beginning of time. Why do we behave the way we do? How did this behavior evolve? What is the relationship between emotion and thought? How can we get along better with each other and live more satisfying lives?
