Message from the Chair
The Department of Psychology provides a variety of opportunities for students. We have an undergraduate major that can be tailored as a strong liberal education, a preprofessional degree or as preparation for graduate study in psychology. In addition, we have two advanced degrees providing professional training in psychology. Our program gives considerable emphasis to psychology as an empirical science, including research design, data analysis and interpretation, and computer skills.
As preparation for graduate work in psychology, our undergraduate major is one of the strongest and most respected in the CSU System. Our better students do well in the Ph.D. programs into which they are often accepted. Our undergraduate program provides a solid background for liberal arts majors choosing to enter business or other more specialized vocations immediately after graduation.
