The original graduate program in psychology began in 1967 as a concentration in school psychology within the Education Department and led to the Master of Education (M.Ed.). In 1968 the Psychology Department was created, and the program expanded to offer the Master of Arts (M.A.) in Psychology. In 1971, the department developed a Master of Science (M.S.) in Psychology. In 1996, the Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) in Clinical Psychology was introduced. The department currently offers courses of study in the following areas:

The Psychology Department strives to provide a learning environment that facilitates the development of skills in critical thinking, assessment and intervention, and one that is grounded in an appreciation for both psychological science and human diversity.
