1 233 Psychology Mission The mission of the psychology department is to assist students in the development of lifelong professional, spiritual, scholarly and scientific talents. Talents in psychology involve the systematic study of behavior and mental processes. By adopting the American Psychological Association recommendations for learning goals and outcomes, the psychology department is committed to encouraging personal and intellectual growth by maintaining a rigorous academic curriculum designed to give the student knowledge of behavior, cognitive processes and emotional functioning. We promote an understanding of how this knowledge is scientifically acquired and applied in a diverse and global society. The psychology program strongly emphasizes the development of analytic and expressive skills that are the basis of investigation, evaluation and communication in this socially responsible field. Outcomes 1. Students will demonstrate familiarity with the major concepts, theoretical perspectives, empirical findings and historical trends in psychology. 2. Students will understand and apply basic research methods in psychology, including research design, data analysis and interpretation. 3. Students will respect and use critical and creative thinking, skeptical inquiry, and, when possible, the scientific approach to solve problems related to behavior and mental processes. 4. Students will understand and apply psychological principles to personal, social and organizational issues. 5. Students will be able to weigh evidence, tolerate ambiguity, act ethically and reflect other values that are the underpinnings of psychology as a discipline. 6. Students will demonstrate information competence and the ability to use computers and other technology for many purposes. 7. Students will be able to communicate effectively in a variety of formats. 8. Students will recognize, understand and respect the complexity of socio-cultural and international diversity. 9. Students will develop insight into their own and others behavior and mental processes and apply effective strategies for self-management and self-improvement. 10. Students will emerge from the major with realistic ideas about how to implement their psychological knowledge, skills and values in occupational pursuits in a variety of settings.
