About the Department

The Department of Psychology offers a program of study leading to the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. The department recognizes that the methods of scientific inquiry can be applied meaningfully and fruitfully to the understanding of individual behavior. The curriculum is designed to provide the student with a strong background in the methodology and content of psychology. Majors receive sound preparation for graduate study as well as for entry-level positions in psychology and related disciplines.

The Department of Psychology offers the Masters of Science in Experimental Psychology (with concentrations in General Psychology and Behavioral Neuroscience).  The program is designed to train students in the scientific methods of psychology in preparation for involvement in basic research and teaching, as well as for work in applied settings (e.g. clinical psychology or industrial/organizational psychology).  The M.S. degree program is designed specifically for students seeking to gain a solid foundation in empirical research for eventual entry into Ph.D. programs in scientific psychology or for students desiring to explore the field.  Students completing this program will be in a better position to apply for doctoral degrees in scientist/practitioner programs in clinical or counseling psychology, as well as doctoral programs in experimental psychology and neuroscience.  Graduates may also go on to related areas of employment such as laboratory assistants, market researchers, science writers and community college teaching.

Psychology faculty, graduate students and visiting researchers discuss their research beginning February 15.  Read more »
