We want our students to do psychology, not just read about it. While you build a scientifically rigorous foundation in the discipline, you will also design studies, analyze and interpret data, communicate your findings, and have the opportunity to apply these skills in real-world settings. Our curriculum is multidisciplinary, and spans social, clinical, developmental, cognitive, and biological/neuroscientific aspects of the field. We believe in working closely with our students both in the classroom and our laboratories. Undergraduates are deeply involved in our research programs exploring the psychology of health-related behaviors, the neuropsychology of bilingualism, the use of technology to teach coding concepts to children, the social construction of depictions of mental illness, and many other topics. We believe this active, engaged approach to learning is the best possible preparation for your life after Lewis & Clark, both as a professional and a scientifically literate citizen.


  • Since graduating, I’ve had three very different jobs. While I can’t say with certainty where I might go next, I know that I want to continue to be in a position of helping and empowering other individuals to do good things for the world.
