Department of Psychology
Challenging curriculum, supportive environment.
The Department of Psychology offers students a solid foundation in the subfields of psychology, including child and adult development, social influences on behavior, personality, human cognition, sensation and perception, neuroscience, abnormal behavior and clinical psychology.
In addition to traditional coursework, students complete independent research and are encouraged to take advantage of the variety of available internship opportunities. Small class sizes enable our faculty to devote individualized attention to students to insure that they achieve their particular academic aspirations. Students are encouraged to become active participants in the learning process and to develop partnerships with classmates so they may support and learn from each other.
We emphasize the provision of high-quality, individualized learning opportunities for our students. Through their experiences in and out of the classroom, our students gain the skills and knowledge that are necessary for success in graduate school or in their careers.
