A popular psychology class is Professor Eric Olofson's course on Fatherhood.

Psychology is defined as "the science of behavior and mental processes," which encompass an array of specialty areas. Similarly, psychologists stand as the most diverse group of people in our society to share the same title. The department strives to give students a sense of the nature of psychology and its place in society. Its professors equip students with an understanding of the scientific method and an ability to apply it in a variety of contexts.

Psychology majors are provided with a sense of the historical background of modern psychology, and students interested in graduate study are well-prepared to succeed.

The Department distinguishes itself with a well-published faculty that strongly encourages student research. Students present research findings at undergraduate research conferences and regularly publish their work with the faculty. Many Wabash psychology students are also active members of Psi Chi International Honor Society. Read about recent events on our department blog and Facebook Page.
