Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and of underlying mental and physiological processes. Courses are offered in a variety of areas, such as learning, perception, clinical, developmental, social, cognitive, psychophysiology and industrial/organizational.

The department’s scientific orientation can be seen in the courses required of all majors and minors and in the orientation of the required core courses. Students begin with a survey of the field and of the basic research techniques used by psychologists.

As students progress, they study statistical analyses of data and more advanced research designs. Majors are encouraged to develop breadth by studying a variety of content areas and to develop depth through advanced-level courses.
