The Department of Psychology strives to promote students' understanding of human behavior through the development of critical thinking skills. Our students study various theoretical models of behavior, learn ways of approaching psychological inquiry and are exposed to a broad range of research. Our aim is to help them to develop an appreciation and understanding of the multiple causes of behavior, as well as to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to address critical problems of individual and society. Through gaining knowledge of methods that can produce behavior change, our students position themselves to be able to make significant contributions to the world around them. We foster in our students their own individual growth and development, as well as help them to acquire the skills necessary to adapt to a rapidly changing, interdependent world. Developing an inquisitive attitude, being able to think critically while synthesizing large quantities of new information, and developing a sensitivity to diversity are some of the skills our students will learn in their psychology courses.
