Department of Psychology

The Department of Psychology offers two undergraduate degrees: a degree in Psychology (BA for those entering prior to Fall 2016; BS for those entering after) and a degree (BS) in Behavioral Neuroscience. Some of our majors — but certainly not all — also complete a concentration in Applied Clinical Science or Industrial/Organization psychology. A psychology minor is another option.

All in all, the Department of Psychology is an exciting place, so browse our site to find out more. We offer resources, professional development suggestions, study abroad, and interesting events. The helpful people listed on the right are located in The Center for Psychological Science (CPS) — everyone except Prof Betz, whose office is located in Tator Hall.  Click here for a printable and smartphone-friendly version of our campus map.
