Our Programs

The Department of Psychology offers an undergraduate major and several minors for a wide range of students. Our programs are purposefully built to spark thought, discussion and solutions to the problems you want to solve.

What Makes Us Unique

Our department consists of full-time faculty, lending to our low student-to-faculty ratio. We provide personal attention to our students and enjoy helping them find research opportunities and experiences that expand their horizons and allow them to transform personally and educationally.

Hands-on learning is the cornerstone of a great education. Directed research projects are credited with expanding our students' thinking and providing experience for future endeavors.
