The objectives of the Department of Psychology are to enrich your understanding of
the behavior and cognitive processes; to have you adopt a rational, objective, experiential
understanding of behavioral and psychological processes; and to develop the critical
thinking abilities that will permit you to distinguish between scientific and nonscientific
explanations of behavior.
The department adopts a biopsychosocial view, one that explains behavior as a function
of both organismic and environmental conditions.
You will be introduced to the current body of knowledge in psychology; its data, methods,
and theoretical formulations in the principle fields.
