The primary goals of the Department of Psychology are to encourage and support the scientific investigation of behavior and mental processes. The department’s undergraduate curriculum provides general and intensive courses of study within psychology, with concentrations in general psychology, clinical psychological science, child psychological science, and heatlh professions.
