You can make a difference. In fact, a meaningful difference in society, in research or even in a clinical setting. And it begins here with our psychology program that pairs practical teaching — 1:1 student to faculty advisement — with high impact experiences such as service learning in local communities to independent study leading to professional publication before graduation.

Psychology is a science, the study of behavior and mental processes. Psychologists work in many different settings with a wide range of populations as educators, researchers, practitioners, consultants, and inventors. Often in collaboration with professionals from other disciplines, psychologists use scientific theories, research, and best practices to help people lead more productive and fulfilling lives.
