Mission

The Psychology program prepares students to study behavior and mental processes within an applied framework.  This approach encourages students to integrate psychological research and theories with ethical practice and moral responsibility.  With an emphasis on human dignity, the department instills in students the concept of service to diverse populations.  The department provides an environment that fosters the development of critical thinking skills for students in courses designated for psychology majors and other students interested in psychological processes.

The program is dedicated to the ideals of service in the helping professions and the goal of seeking knowledge through scientific research. Students pursue a BS in Psychology. Based on American Psychological Association’s (APA) Guidelines for the Undergraduate Psychology Major (APA, 2013), and The Assessment CyberGuide for Learning Goals and Outcomes (APA, 2009) since they became available in 2002 and 2003 respectively.
