Psychology is the scientific study of human behavior and mental processes. There are many different areas which comprise the science of psychology, including: brain and behavior relationships, human development, learning, memory, cognition, creativity, group dynamics, personality theories, and the identification and treatment of psychological disorders. In addition, because it is a scientific discipline, students of psychology will develop a core understanding of the scientific method, including research design and skills necessary for critical analysis.

Our department also includes the academic disciplines gerontology and social work as well as being a part of the college's Academic Foundations Program.
