Psychology

Psychology is the scientific study of behavior, mind, and brain. We seek to understand how people think and act, both as individuals and in groups.  The department has 15 faculty providing expertise in six subareas of study: cognitive, cultural, developmental, social, psychopathology, and neuroscience.  Features of the major include foundational courses, training in statistics and research methods, a cultural immersion experience, small advanced seminars, and opportunities to conduct original research.
