The Department of Psychology attempts to foster, among all students, a grasp and appreciation of the scientific method in the study of behavior, and to stimulate interest in the field of Psychology. An undergraduate major in psychology is offered as preparation for either graduate study or careers in which the science of behavior is applicable.
We offer bachelor's and master's degrees in psychology with a strong emphasis on the
development of research and analytical skills. A diverse range of classes are available
in areas such as social, cognitive, personality, life-span development, clinical and
abnormal, physiological, perception, industrial/organizational and evolutionary psychology.
