Mission

The Psychology program shares the University’s commitment to develop ethical leaders for a culturally diverse world and contributes to the liberal education of students. Through a comprehensive education in the science of psychology, the Psychology Department seeks to educate the whole person, pursue academic excellence, advance scholarship, promote service and justice, and encourage life-long learning.

Description

The Psychology Department offers a high quality curriculum where students examine many in-depth aspects of human and animal behavior, including biological, psychological, and sociocultural perspectives. Students are provided the opportunity to apply these perspectives to a variety of individual, family, and community contexts. As students progress through the curriculum, they have opportunities to assist faculty with research and engage in their own research with faculty supervision. The program prepares students for graduate study in psychology and related fields or careers in other professions.
