SUMMARY

Choosing to study Physiological Psychology is not only a valuable choice, but naturally a necessary first step for pupils endeavoring to pursue a career as an exercise psychologist, an electrophysiology technician, or a physiological therapist. Interestingly, nationally, physiological psychology is a very rare major coming in at the 195th most popular major. Last year alone, there were 1,211 physiological psychology diplomas received. In-state tuition for physiological psychology at private schools is, on average, 3.8 times more pricey than their public equivalents.

With just 27 institutions offering physiological psychology you may have limited options as to the institutions that will have an option for you. If you are hoping to immerse yourself with other physiological psychology undergrads, consider colleges in California which have more students admitted to physiological psychology than any other state. less precisely, the best region to study physiological psychology is in the Far West region with University of California-Los Angeles and University of California-Santa Barbara best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the best conference to major in physiological psychology is the Pacific-12 Conference with University of California-Los Angeles representing the conference. That said, our belief is that the best school for physiological psychology is Colby College. You may also want to check out our list of best colleges.

The overall best school is not necessarily the best school for you. There are many more facets to weigh when deciding on institution. Things like campus amenities, transportation services, and food might definitely sway your choice of which school to attend. Here at authority.org, we've weighed the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which physiological psychology college is home to the top college campus, the answer is University of California-Los Angeles. If, for example, you are very interested in which college boasts the finest campus, then we have a whole page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, professor reviews, government databases, and more so we can compare all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our comprehensive list for the universities with the best student life and, from that list, our selection of the university with the best student life for physiological psychology is University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. Curious why? Keep scrolling to discover more about Authority's top choices. Some of our decisions might surprise you.

If cost is a primary deciding factor in your decisions, you might consider avoiding Wesleyan University. Wesleyan University appears to be the most expensive university for physiological psychology, at least regarding out of state attendance. We have a list of the most expensive colleges that could put the expense at Wesleyan University into perspective. For more context, you may want to know that physiological psychology is the 76th most expensive major in the United States, with an average expense of $41,200. To zoom out a little, the most expensive state for physiological psychology on our list is Maine demonstrated with a tuition of $54,870 at the main school in the state Colby College. Even more broadly, the most costly region of the U.S. for physiological psychology is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Wesleyan University with a cost of $56,704, Quinnipiac University with a cost of $46,790, and Colby College with a cost of $54,870.

In-state attendees can anticipate paying in the neighborhood of $10,900 for a degree in physiological psychology. The price swells substantially to an average of $32,600 for the out-of-state public-school undergrad. Our selection for the college with the best value for physiological psychology: Colby College. On this page you will find our comprehensive list of the universities we believe to be the best value overall. Bear in mind, this discussion is based on being an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition is considered, but we do not know where you live (and are not trying to collect that kind of data).

Earnings for physiological psychology majors differ widely, but within two-years of completing the major students will typically make in the neighborhood of $38,100. There can be much variation in earnings potential; highest paid earners can enjoy pay up to $76,700. Even straight out of college, the minimum earning jobs within the physiological psychology field make $18,000, which could be worse. The highest earning graduates from physiological psychology attended Quinnipiac University and if you want to find the colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The prevailing diversity of physiological psychology ranks very near the top, being in the 98th percentile of all majors. The college with the most composite diversity for physiological psychology is Wesleyan University and here you can find our comprehensive list of the schools with the most diversity. The financial diversity of Physiological Psychology sits only in the 55th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is greater than financial diversity, in the 98th percentile. White collegians compose the largest proportion, 39%, of those studying physiological psychology. Additionally, 68% of scholars pursuing a physiological psychology degree are women.

We have insufficient professors data for physiological psychology to make the conclusions we normally would have made in this sentence. If we incorporate information other than basic rankings it becomes clear that the college with the overall best professors for physiological psychology is University of California-Santa Barbara. You will find an explanation of our evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, as well as some of the best examples of instructors in the country.

Finally, the most difficult college to get into for physiological psychology is Colby College. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we have a detailed list of the hardest colleges to get into. With that said, we hope you understand that considering higher education through a lens only informed by superlatives can create issues. We encourage you to look at some of our other pages on individual schools and read some of our background pages on useful details to consider as your school search develops.
