The Department of Psychology offers courses designed to introduce students to the science and profession of psychology and to consider the psychological nature of people in the context of liberal education. In addition to preparing students for graduate training in psychology or related professions, psychology courses also educate in many basic skills important to other professional areas, including business, law, public administration and research. The department requires students to develop and conduct individual research projects as a means of developing these basic skills.
