Psychology

The Psychology Department offers a broad program covering areas of clinical, cognitive, cultural, developmental, humanistic, learning and memory, physiological, and social psychology.  Students explore the study of behavior from both the empirical and the theoretical perspectives.  Furthermore, students become familiar with statistical procedures and develop skills in research design.  In addition to classroom work, many internships and research placements are available.  Students may seek internship placements related to such areas as clinical, developmental, physiological, experimental, educational and industrial/ organizational psychology.  Several faculty members are involved in ongoing empirical research projects in which motivated students are encouraged to participate.  The program provides strong academic training consistent with pre-professional preparation for a career in a variety of psychological fields, in education, in business, and in research.
