Psychology is the scientific study of human and animal behavior. The Department of Psychology teaches the history, methods, and philosophies of approaches to our field.
The Department provides the highest quality academic experience at the graduate and undergraduate levels. We teach the skills and knowledge our students need for personal and professional advancement.
As active scientists and professionals, we perform research that advances our field and we engage in activities that serve our profession. As committed educators, we collaborate with students on research projects and community activities.

For admission to the degree program, students must earn at least a C in introductory psychology, in elementary statistics, and in general biology.
