Engaging Minds, Transforming Lives


Humans have long studied behavior and examined its effects, culminating in the modern combination we have today of clinical and experimental Psychology.

Psychology explores some of the most fascinating questions relating to human and animal behavior and the mind.

The Southwestern Psychology Department seeks to provide students with a rich, broad background in psychology. We emphasize the position that psychology is first a science, and then a profession and work to prepare students for success in any avenue of the field. You may choose to complete a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree, with a major in Psychology. Selecting to minor in Psychology can complement work towards other degrees.
