The Psychology Department aims to enhance students’ understanding of human behavior and mental processes and their connections to other disciplines.

Psychology students experience the breadth of the science while tailoring the program to match their personal interests and career goals. Students have the option of exploring:

  • Biological psychology
  • Clinical psychology
  • Cognitive psychology
  • Counseling psychology
  • Developmental psychology
  • Social areas of psychology

All students have the opportunity to work with faculty on research projects, often becoming involved in on-going research during their sophomore or junior year.
