Psychology Department

Collaborative research is a key feature of our department. Students are encouraged to engage in collaborative research with faculty. This collaboration may include conducting independent research supervised by a faculty member or assisting a faculty member with his or her research. In keeping with the spirit of the colleges, the Psychology Department provides students with many additional experiential learning opportunities, including internships, service learning projects, teaching practicum, and independent learning projects.
