The field of psychology is a broad one, ranging from the study of the brain to the study of communication in groups, from the study of abnormal behavior and its treatment to the study of child development. Accordingly, it is possible to find professional psychologists in a wide variety of settings: in clinics or mental hospitals, administering tests or doing therapy with patients; in industry, doing career counseling, team development, personnel selection, or contributing to human factor engineering; in all kinds of schools and educational institutions, both in teaching and counseling positions; working with preschool youngsters or doing basic research in university laboratories.

The undergraduate program of the Department of Psychology aims to give the student a well-rounded liberal education with a solid grounding in the basic theories, methods, and techniques of modern psychology and a broad acquaintance with the various substantive areas of the field. It is thus designed to equip students with a general background in psychology as well as basic skills in research so as to enable them to work in a wide variety of contexts or to pursue study at the graduate level for further specialization.

For graduation in Psychology, 136 units of credit, to be distributed as described below, are required. There are eight core courses which every psychology student has to take. Furthermore, there are three general areas with specified required courses, among which the student has the option to choose. To satisfy the requirements for the social-developmental area the student must choose three courses out of six; for the cognitive-physiological area the student again has the option to choose three courses out of four; and for the applied area, the student can choose two courses out of four. There are then electives totaling forty-five credits which include more advanced and specialized courses from which the student can choose after completing their university-wide requirements.

The Psychology Department also runs double-major programs with the Departments of Sociology, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychological Guidance and Counseling, Western Languages and Literatures and History.

The Department offers two graduate programs leading to M.A. degrees, one in Clinical Psychology and the other in Psychological Sciences (with specialization in Developmental Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Social Psychology and Behavioral Neuroscience).

The Department also offers a Ph.D. program in Clinical Psychology.
