The mission of the Department of Psychology is to provide undergraduate students with knowledge of the principles of behavior as established by scientific methods.

Students in our program develop an understanding of psychological science through instruction in the classroom and hands on participation in research projects. Classroom instruction is structured so that students first receive a general overview of the topics and methods in psychology, followed by a more thorough exploration of specific content areas.

Research involvement is structured so that students evolve from apprentices to collaborators by taking progressively greater responsibility for the design and execution of psychological research projects. The knowledge and skills students acquire through these activities are intended to prepare them for graduate study in psychology or related fields and to help them pursue careers in business, government, education, medical or public service settings.
