Department of Psychology

"I am because WE are; and therefore, WE are because I am."
~ Asante Proverb


The Department of Psychology provides students with a strong foundation in the field while emphasizing Black and multicultural psychology.

Our department offers major and minor programs in psychology in a setting which allows students to excel academically, professionally, socially, and personally.

Both the Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Sciences (BS) programs in psychology can lead to an advanced degree. If you have a BA or BS and would like a doctorate, you can apply to our master’s in community psychology.
