Our mission is to further the understanding of human behavior, thinking, and emotion through teaching, research, and service. This mission includes the discovery and dissemination of laws and principles pertaining to both individual and group psychological functioning. Great effort is also expended in developing students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. We desire that these students be equipped with the knowledge and methods that will place them at the forefront of progress in the psychological disciplines as we enter the twenty-first century.

The Department has had a long and successful history with many psychologists contributing to its success since its beginnings in 1930.
