  • The Department of Psychology offers students the opportunity to establish a strong scientific and research foundation in psychology, which prepares them to be thoughtful and discerning problem solvers.

    The program examines the most up-to-date and comprehensive psychological research and theory and provides opportunities for direct involvement in its application to clinical, mental-health, business, educational, and other settings. Psychology students are encouraged to take advantage of study abroad opportunities. Why not complete your psychology coursework while also acquiring relevant professional skills such as proficiency in a foreign language and cross-cultural awareness?

    Psychology Study Abroad Liaison

    To assist students with their academic choices abroad and to help answer any questions about receiving major credit while abroad, each academic department and program has assigned a faculty member to serve as the study abroad liaison. Psychology majors who plan to study abroad should speak with the study abroad liaison before they go abroad, and again once they have returned from study abroad.

    The liaison for Psychology is Prof. Joseph Cunningham.
