The Department of Psychological Sciences encourages students to engage in critical thinking about the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors of themselves and those of diverse populations around the globe. The psychology degree helps graduates gain entry into a variety of fields of study, as well as into graduate programs in Psychological Science. Students may also minor in psychology as an accompaniment to their primary area of study.

Faculty scholarship applies locally to communities and populations in North Carolina, the United States, and globally. We also mentor students towards the completion of their own projects that are specifically of interest to them, as they are gaining increased knowledge of the research process.

If you are curious to learn more about psychology, please review our course offerings and enroll in one of our foundational courses or electives, or sign up to be a research participant in one of our studies. You are also always welcome to attend a psychology club meeting or program.
