The psychology department provides an outstanding learning environment for approximately 600 majors and 200 minors. A recent survey of students indicated that approximately 80 percent of our majors are involved in hands-on activities that are critical for successful job placement or graduate school acceptance.
With such a large number of students, funding is critical for maintaining the quality and availability of these high-impact practices.
