You’ll work alongside faculty who are both practitioners and scholars. You’ll participate in seminars with respected researchers in varying psychological fields. You may even have the opportunity to complete your own original research that is presented at a regional or national conference.

If you want to investigate the behaviors and experiences that help make us human, you’ll love the offerings of the psychology program.
