Mission Statement

The mission of the College of Psychology is to offer degree programs that provide a range of academic and practical opportunities to students in the field of psychology and closely allied disciplines, from the bachelor’s to the doctoral level, and to train future researchers and practitioners. Through these opportunities, students will develop knowledge and professional growth in the science of psychology and its application to the understanding of human activity and will be prepared for success in a variety of professional and academic pursuits. The intimate interplay between our Psychology Services Center and academic programs provides educational opportunities rooted in real problems and research activities that attempt to find answers to extant concerns. The center seeks to offer programs of excellence in educating future scientists and mental health practitioners, in advancing knowledge about psychology and the treatment of psychological problems, and in providing high-quality services that address society’s current mental health needs.
