Mission

Psychology involves the scientific study of behavior and mental processes. The psychology department cultivates competence in the clinical application and research of psychology. As an inherently interdisciplinary field, psychological studies impart practical knowledge to all students from an integrated biopsychosocial perspective. Faculty in psychology routinely emphasize the application of Viterbo’s Franciscan values and the utility of experiential learning.

Goals

The goal of the psychology department is to teach students to think critically about psychology and how to apply psychology to their personal and professional lives.

Successful students will be able to:

  • Describe key concepts, principles, and theories in primary content domains of psychology.
  • Employ scientific reasoning and critical thinking when evaluating and conducting psychological research.
  • Explain and apply ethical principles and standards in the evaluation of psychology science and practice.
  • Demonstrate effective interpersonal, oral, and written communication skills as they relate to psychological science and practice.
  • Identify their interests and strengths in order to determine realistic and meaningful career options.
