The Department of Psychology seeks to develop students' knowledge, interests, and abilities in relation to the science and practice of psychology, and to facilitate students' understanding of psychology from multiple perspectives. As active participants in the study of behavior and mental processes, our students learn to think critically, reason scientifically, exercise ethical responsibility, be cognizant of diversity, and speak and write in the discourse of the discipline. Students accomplish these aims through extensive research training, internship opportunities, caring academic advising, and career/professional development throughout the major. With this foundation, our students become better prepared to develop their potential for lifelong learning.
This program really pushes you to meet your potential and helps you go above and beyond the abilities that you thought you had. This is a tough program but completing it is an amazing feeling and showed me that I really can overcome any challenges that are in front of me.
