Psychology is a discipline defined as the scientific study of behavior and mental processes. Our curriculum provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to investigate questions important to the human condition from a scientific perspective, emphasizing clear thinking, communication skills, and ethical judgment. In addition, we strive to foster the personal and professional growth of students in our department by offering extensive and varied opportunities for integrative experiential learning, including faculty/student collaborative research, service learning, and on- and off-campus internships.

Our goal is to produce graduates with a high level of reflective, critical, and complex thinking skills derived from their knowledge of the basic principles and methodology in both traditional and emerging branches of psychology. They will be well prepared to pursue advanced training and rewarding careers in psychology and related disciplines, and to be active and engaged lifelong learners prepared to make positive contributions to the people and world around them.
