There are currently fourteen faculty members in the Department of Psychology. The faculty represent a range of disciplines within
psychology that provide for a comprehensive curriculum in both undergraduate and graduate majors in psychology.
The faculty members in the Department of Psychology provide expert instruction, motivate students
to be active learners, and assist students to develop an appreciation and enthusiasm about course content
and the study of psychology.
The high quality of instruction provided by faculty in the Department of Psychology can also be recognized
by the many undergraduate students who continue on to PhD and MA programs in psychology at major universities.
Some of these students are now faculty members in departments of psychology at universities and colleges
around the country, as well as employed as psychologists in clinical and research settings.
The strong research emphasis in many of the courses is consistent with the scientist-practitioner model of
psychology. Many of the faculty members in the Department of Psychology provide undergraduate students with
opportunities to be involved and assist in their research studies. In some cases, students take a major role
in these studies, presenting papers at regional and national psychology conferences, as well as
co-authors of published research studies.
