The objectives of the Department of Psychology are threefold:
1) to give our majors who intend to pursue a professional career in psychology a thorough background in the discipline and to prepare them for admittance to graduate school; 2) to give all of our majors a grounding in the science and practice of psychology, and the tools to pursue a variety of career choices; and 3) to give non-majors an appreciation of psychology as a basic and applied science.

Special Programs or Facilities
The Psychology Department has a strong commitment to research involving faculty working together with students, and maintains laboratories equipped for research in areas such as mood disorders, perception and cognition, animal behavior, stereotyping and prejudice, child and adolescent development, learning and memory, gender issues, human sexuality, community health, psychological testing, and evolutionary psychology. Many of our majors present their work at student and professional conferences, and share authorship of research articles published in professional journals.
