The psychology program’s curriculum is designed to encourage students to explore how mind and behavior are best understood from various research methods, multiple interacting levels of analysis, including physiological mechanisms, individual psychological processes, and socio-cultural influences.
Faculty and students investigate how the brain works; the interactions of brain, mind, and behavior; the person in social context; the development of the person in various life stages from prenatal through death; the nature of cognition and language; variations of psychological suffering, and the myriad methods of treating that suffering. The goals are breadth and depth of learning, and preparation for graduate study and/or careers in psychology and a variety of other professions.
