Central Washington University's Department of Psychology provides online and face-to-face learning opportunities and experiences through which undergraduate and graduate students develop an understanding of the perspectives, content, methodology, and technology of the science of human and nonhuman behavior and mental processes.

Psychologists dedicate themselves to understanding thought and behavior. These broad areas are studied through developmental, biological, clinical, cognitive and social methods. As you become more knowledgeable of psychological principles, you will better understand your friends, family, coworkers, society at large and yourself!
