Department of Psychology

Ayers Hall

Our mission is to develop a thoroughgoing, science-based curriculum for understanding behavior; to establish student learning outcomes related to basic psychological principles, research methods, critical thinking, and professional skills; and to support student participation in faculty research programs and community service projects.

We design these experiences to allow our students the opportunity to practice discussing major psychological principles and research findings; to apply psychological principles and procedures in real-life settings; and to eventually pursue careers in an array of human-service industries or admission to various graduate programs.

Our graduate program includes an Association for Behavior Analysis International-verified course sequence and is accredited by the Association for Behavior Analysis International Accreditation Board to award master's degrees.
