We are a research-oriented experimental psychology department focused. All of our
tenure-track faculty members maintain active research labs working alongside undergraduate
students, graduate research assistants, and post-doctoral fellows. Our faculty are
active in several research areas including: cognition and development, learning, social
and evolutionary, biological, and quantitative psychology.
Our research labs are an important component of our teaching philosophy. Students are able to actively apply principles they acquire in the classroom through direct participation in research. The faculty maintain a student-centered approach to educating students both in the classroom and their research laboratories.
