The School of Psychology envisions creating a community of competent and ethical professionals with strong critical thinking skills and the ability to work in a diverse, global community. We envision our graduates to have a commitment to social justice and social change through the inquiry, discovery, and application of their knowledge and skills, thereby positively influencing human experiences throughout the world.


The School of Psychology provides educational programs based on the scholar-practitioner model and dedicated to improve the human experience within a global community. Graduates demonstrate critical thinking, acquire a competent knowledge of the content and methods of their discipline, and exhibit the highest ethical standards of their profession. The application of the knowledge, skills, and attitudes acquired by the graduates, in turn, facilitates a positive change within their own lives and the lives of others.
