Faculty members have doctoral degrees from major universities, insuring that every course is taught by someone who has extensive training in psychology. No courses are taught by graduate students.
Psychology department faculty actively work in the discipline. Each year they publish many articles and books and present papers at the state, regional and national levels. Their specializations and research interests cover such various topics as memory, psychotherapy, neuroscience, industrial/organizational psychology, and forensic psychology. Students are encouraged to work with faculty on research projects.
Besides assisting in research projects, students have opportunities for extensive contact with faculty through individual readings, undergraduate seminars, and departmental committee memberships.
