Psychology, as a discipline, is concerned with the experience, behavior, needs, desires and potential of human beings. It is basic to self-development, and to career fields and life pursuits that involve other human beings.
Objectives of the department are to provide a general and in-depth survey of the fields of the science of psychology for students interested in diversified career fields; to prepare undergraduate students to pursue graduate studies in order to enter one of the several professional career areas for which the major is required: clinical psychology, industrial psychology, school psychology, teaching and research in psychology, for example; and to help students who are interested in self-development obtain current and sound approaches to problems of topical interest.
Graduate study leads to a master’s degree in psychology with programs in general psychology, clinical psychology, clinical behavioral psychology and to the Ph.D. in clinical psychology. These programs are described in the graduate catalog.
