Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and mental processes approached from physiological, cognitive, behavioral, social, and applied perspectives. Psychology applies a range of scientific methodologies to the study of such topics as: brain function, learning, motivation, sensation, perception, cognition, memory, development, social influence, attitudes, and mental disorders and treatments.

The department’s goals are to give students both a strong, scientifically rigorous base in the major subdisciplines of psychology and an exposure to applications of psychology. Learn more about our courses.

The department strives to develop students’ competencies in conducting and evaluating psychological research, and many students have had the opportunity to publish papers and give professional presentations with faculty. In addition, students can gain experience in applied psychology through our internship program.
