The Department of Psychology identifies its mission as striving each day to give its students the best possible training and education in psychology. Students are provided with a comprehensive introduction to the scientific study of behavior and cognitive processes within the liberal arts tradition. The program emphasizes the scientific foundation of psychology; however, it also stresses the importance of applying psychological principles, methods, and findings to solving problems and improving people’s lives. The psychology department strives to graduate all their undergraduate and graduate students with the knowledge, training and professional skills to seek advanced graduate training in psychology or to pursue employment in a career related to psychology.
