The Department of Psychology, established in 1917, has a long history of graduating majors who make a positive impact on the world, both through their academic pursuits and the service they provide their communities. Our faculty pride themselves on their skill as teachers and as researchers. Each member is committed to excellence in the classroom, and the breadth of their research interests includes topics such as:

  • Environmental variables that influence gambling behavior
  • The effects of memory on children’s ability to cope with traumatic experiences
  • The effects of social power on group dynamics
  • Health behaviors in college students
  • The effects of aging on memory

Students have opportunities to work on faculty-developed research and to develop their own independent research projects.
