The Department of Psychology
The study of psychology familiarizes students with the scientific study of mind and behavior. The discipline relies on methods ranging from simple observation to rigorous experimentation. Its subjects include how we develop and learn, how our actions are motivated, how we perceive the world around us, how we respond to it intellectually and emotionally, and how these processes change throughout life and are integrated into the personality under social influences. The Psychology department offers courses that apply psychology to a variety of practical settings, including the workplace, clinical, legal, and school environments.
