Mission Statement

The College of Psychology fosters academic excellence, intellectual inquiry, leadership, research, and commitment to our community through the exploration, discovery, dissemination, and application of knowledge relevant to the psychological and behavioral sciences.

Our undergraduate programs promote scientific literacy, while emphasizing critical evaluation, effective communication, and the principles and practice of scientific methods.  Our graduate programs focus on specialized training in fields dedicated to the advancement of behavioral sciences and the professional practice of psychology and counseling.  The synergy 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.

Through these programs, students will develop knowledge in the science of psychology, counseling, or neuroscience and its application to the understanding of human activity, as they prepare for success in a variety of professional and academic pursuits.
