About Us

The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences has nearly 200 majors in our undergraduate program and approximately 35 full-time graduate students in our master’s (M.S.) program. Both programs provide students with a solid foundation for pursuing further study or employment in basic psychological science or in applied areas such as clinical or counseling psychology. The undergraduate program is also attractive to students who want a clearer understanding of human behavior as part of a liberal arts and sciences education.

The 17 full-time faculty members of our department include experimental, clinical, developmental, and individual-differences psychologists. Our faculty have active research programs in many areas of psychological science including attention and performance, behavioral and computational neuroscience, child development, cognitive aging, cognitive neuroscience, human factors, learning, memory, personality, social psychology, visual perception, and both human and comparative cognition. This research takes place in active research laboratories within the department.
