We aspire to offering courses that challenge students to question assumptions and to providing experiences that prepare our undergraduates for life, work, and graduate study. In this vision, our graduates will be endowed with the maturity, cognitive sophistication, and skills befitting a liberal arts degree.


The Department of Psychological Science is committed to supporting faculty who deliver high quality teaching, create research opportunities, and foster close student-faculty mentorship. We offer enthusiastic and innovative instruction by professors who teach courses in their specialty areas. Because this passion for psychology is sustained through active research and professional growth, the department is dedicated to supporting outstanding research facilities and continued faculty development. Our curriculum encourages undergraduate students to fully explore the multi-disciplinary field of psychological science. Through our teaching, research, and mentorship we instill respect for multiple viewpoints and approaches, while inspiring intellectual curiosity and personal growth.
