The people of the Psychology department are the very best to be found. The faculty are world-class researchers and teachers, the professional staff are proficient and caring, the students are talented and diverse, and our distinguished alumni are accomplished and engaged. We are committed to fostering a safe, welcoming, supportive, and inclusive environment for all students, faculty, and staff. We are also innovative, collaborative, and driven by the pursuit of excellence in all we do.
The Department offers
- the BS degree in Psychology (with an optional Emphasis in Neuroscience);
- PhD programs in Behavioral and Brain Sciences, Clinical Psychology (APA and PCSAS accredited), or Industrial-Organizational Psychology; and
- the professional Master’s program in Industrial-Organizational Psychology (IOMP).
