Psychology is the scientific study of mental processes and behavior. It is a broad field that encompasses many interests. Psychologists develop knowledge and techniques that benefit all disciplines. Many of our students integrate their work in psychology with their other interests. Psychology students learn how to collect, interpret, and present data about human subjects and understand social relationships. Graduate students in our counseling program and dual degree law programs engage in coursework and experiential training designed to prepare them for rewarding careers in their respective professions.

Four undergraduate and three graduate degree programs offer a thorough overview of a broad discipline.
In the field, Valpo psychology students are driven by a desire to help others.
