The Department of Psychology offers a number of programs that allow you to customize your degree to suit your interests and abilities. We offer small class sizes, ensuring you’ll get personal, one-on-one attention from experienced, knowledgeable faculty members who are committed to your success. They can also help connect you with additional resources, including tutoring to help you prepare for your next exam and academic advising to help you choose the best path to completing your degree.

The department has laboratory space for a wide variety of clinical research. As a student, you'll have the opportunity to work side-by-side with faculty members as early as your freshman year through our Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program.
