Psychology is the science of behavior. Courses in this discipline convey the principles, methods and theories that are necessary for a better understanding of human and animal behaviors.
The Department of Psychology is home to approximately 70 graduate students and over 1,000 undergraduate psychology majors and minors. In collaboration with the Department of Biology and the Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute, the Department of Psychology launched a BS degree program in Neuroscience in 2019. Students interact frequently with psychology faculty and peers through academic coursework, discovery of new knowledge in our research facilities, and applying evidence-based principles to understanding behavior in real-world settings.
