Psychology is a broad discipline with many areas of specialization. Majors are exposed to several fascinating areas of study, including behavioral, biological, clinical, cognitive, developmental and social psychology.

Students may study topics such as parenting; obesity and physical activity; social and emotional development in infants, toddlers, and preschoolers; smoking, alcohol and drug use; sustainability; the use of unreliable expert testimony in courts and beliefs about memory and how this affects jury deliberation.

We encourage students to master psychological principles in a variety of subfields of psychology, as well as apply the material to life situations.

Undergraduate Programs

The Psychology Department offers a B.A. degree program focused on the understanding of behavior, cognition and emotion.

Graduate Programs

The undergraduate and graduate programs are interlinked so that each program is supported and enhanced by the other.
