The Psychology Department's undergraduate program combines a focus on using social science methodology to study human psychology with an emphasis on the analysis and interpretation of data. Students who major or minor in psychology take a common core of courses that provide a general introduction to the field, an understanding of the research techniques used by psychologists, and hands-on research experience. The department also offers PhD programs in five areas: Clinical Psychology, Personality and Health, Cognitive Psychology, Social Psychology, and Brain, Behavior, and Cognition (BBC). Faculty and graduate students in all five areas are conducting some of the most exciting and influential research being done in the psychological sciences today.
