Our Mission

The Psychology Department is dedicated to teaching, research, and public service. Instruction in the methods and content of the field of psychology is provided within the liberal arts and sciences' tradition of encouraging intellectual and personal development. The curriculum offers a diversity of learning situations and includes many opportunities for writing.

The undergraduate program prepares students for graduate study or entry level employment. The graduate program is designed for those who intend to continue at the doctoral level, to gain employment in applied or scientific settings, or to obtain advanced training related to present employment. The Department is committed to the ongoing assessment of its programs.

Both undergraduate and graduate students are required to study research methods and statistics and to comprehend the empirical nature of psychology. The ethical principles of the field are stressed, so that students come to value the dignity of the individual, the importance of promoting human welfare, and the maintenance of scientific, academic, and professional integrity.
