Welcome to the Undergraduate Program of the Department of Psychology! Our department has a distinguished history and a vibrant intellectual presence, offering excellent instructional, research, and engagement opportunities for undergraduates.
The study of Psychology at the undergraduate level occurs within the framework of the liberal arts, where students study disciplines in the sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities. Psychology requires students to gain a strong foundation in quantitative reasoning and the application of the scientific method as the preferred way of knowing about the world. That is, psychologists rely upon observable evidence to construct knowledge. Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behavior.
