English writing also includes a system of punctuation marks that is similar to those used in most alphabetic languages around the world. The purpose of punctuation is to mark meaningful grammatical relationships in sentences to aid readers in understanding a text and to indicate features important for reading a text aloud.

Curriculum

Students who study psychology learn about how to make themselves a better person, how to be more productive, how to help society, and they are prepared to pursue a career in psychology or other industries. Students will take courses in general psychology, quantitative methods, introduction to laboratory methods in psychology and depending if they are pursuing a BA or a BS, may take clinical psychology, psychology of abnormal behavior, industrial-organizational psychology, cognitive psychology, developmental psychology, psychology of child/adolescent/adult development, social psychology, cognitive psychology/learning and memory principles and thinking and problem solving, and neuroscience of emotions and motivations.

The industrial and organizational psychology graduate program is ranked #2 in the nation.

Internships and Careers

Internships are not a requirement for a baccalaureate degree at BGSU, but they can provide valuable experience and opportunities to explore various interests. Because the psychology faculty are  active in many areas of research, undergraduate students are encouraged to pursue their own research projects in psychology, or to work with faculty members on existing research projects. Some of the current research projects include attitudes about ethnic foods, preschool gender and race attitudes, discriminatory experiences in Arab and Muslim adolescents, and medical implications of additional diseases on motivation and religious coping

A considerable number of Bowling Green psychology majors go on to graduate study for advanced degrees in psychology or in other professions such as law, social work, business, health care, and medicine. Those who do not go on for further study have been successful in obtaining employment in a variety of areas. Many work in mental health care settings, schools, or social agencies, while others pursue careers in government in one of the three general areas of research, personnel, or management.
