The Department of Psychology is a vibrant and diverse environment, with 27 full-time faculty, over 900 undergraduate majors, and 60 graduate students. Our department is known for its warm atmosphere and its emphasis on collaborative, cutting-edge science.

We offer doctoral training in clinical, cognitive, developmental, and social psychology, and an experimental Master’s degree program. For undergraduates, we offer a Bachelor of Science degree, a Bachelor of Arts degree, a psychology minor, and a concentration in teacher education. Our emphasis on rigorous teaching and research complement each other in offering students the option to extend their learning beyond the classroom by conducting research in the laboratories of faculty members, as well as in the surrounding community.

The department also provides valuable clinical services to the community at the Psychology Clinic, which is a non-profit organization offering a full range of short-term therapy services and assessments for children, adolescents, and adults.
