Department of Applied Psychology
With a focus on theory, research, and practical application, the Department of Applied Psychology prepares students to understand and work with individuals, families, and communities across contexts and cultures.
We offer programs of study for undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students, and our aim is to employ psychological theory and research in a variety of real-world settings, including the school, home, classroom, and community. Our students have the opportunity to conduct their own independent research projects and work with our esteemed faculty in both laboratory- and field-based studies.
