The field of psychology is both science-driven and practice-oriented and our department offers hands-on experience in both areas.
Students interested in exploring the scientific aspects of psychology can work on ground-breaking research with faculty in diverse areas, including neuroscience, sensation and perception, memory and thinking, social relationships, mood disturbances, adult/child clinical disorders and health psychology. Students interested in exploring the practice of psychology can become involved with both clinical practicum experiences and with peer teaching.
Psychology can help you better understand yourself and others. Knowledge and application-based experimental and clinical methods are powerful tools offered at WSU that are useful in a variety of career choices.
