About the Department
The Psychology Department is committed to expanding its research agenda while retaining its lasting commitment to deliver a high-quality undergraduate and graduate student curriculum. Rather than viewing research and teaching as separate goals, the Psychology faculty members strongly support the view that research and teaching are complementary activities. Thus, the Psychology Department’s vision is to gain national and international recognition as a research-oriented teaching-intensive department.
