Graduate Programs

We currently have over 2000 undergraduate psychology majors and more than 100 graduate students. Many of our undergraduates aspire to graduate work and are admitted to graduate programs throughout the country. In fact, the department was ranked by the National Science Foundation as second in the nation (for schools in its category) in the number of students who went on to complete a Ph.D. program. Other students seek and find jobs in business and human service agencies which utilize their psychological skills. Just as faculty are active in research and service, numerous psychology majors assist in research and co-author papers which they present at conferences.
