The science of psychology explores behavior, mental processes and experience. Psychologists apply research, knowledge and expertise to an array of human concerns. The psychology department’s goal is to provide a diversity of courses to meet the range of interests and professional aspirations of students majoring in psychology. The psychology faculty have backgrounds and interests in a variety of areas to assist students as they progress through the major.

Students are encouraged to participate in experiential learning opportunities offered by the department. For students interested in human-relations oriented areas of the discipline, experiences are available through community service and internship programs. For those interested in research, the department has well-equipped facilities where students may conduct independent and/or collaborative student-faculty research.
