The Department of Psychology provides a solid foundation in the principles of human behavior. Through coursework and fieldwork, students expand their knowledge of human behavior and mental processes and develop their abilities to think clearly and critically.
We take a student-centered approach to instruction and provide unique opportunities for undergraduates to conduct independent research with professors. Students not only learn about the research process firsthand, they often present their results before professional psychology audiences regionally and nationally.
Our graduates possess the research and statistical skills and the insight into human behavior sought after by employers in virtually any profession. Majors have gone on to prestigious graduate schools as well as fulfilling careers in such fields as mental health, human services, education, business and sales.
Under our newest program, undergraduates who take a required set of classes and perform 1,000 hours of supervised independent fieldwork may sit for the Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts exam upon graduation.
