Psychological inquiry lies at the heart of the social sciences. It is concerned with understanding how the behavior of the individual depends on biological, developmental, cognitive, and social processes. Courses offered by the psychology department are designed to give students a thorough grounding in modern research and theory about psychological processes at many different levels.

Psychology is the multidimensional scientific study of behavior and thought processes. Psychologists study the structure and function of the nervous system; basic processes such as sensation, perception, and cognition; and complex phenomena such as development, individual behavior, group dynamics, personality, and abnormal behavior.
