There has been an unprecedented increase in the number of our students over the past decade, and future growth is also expected, as the university continues to expand.
The majority of Psychology faculty are actively involved in significant research. Many research programs conducted by the department's faculty have been supported by major grants from various federal agencies and produced a number of highly regarded publications.
