Welcome to the Department of Psychology at Idaho State University

Our department is committed to quality research and teaching. Our general objectives are to facilitate both undergraduate and graduate students' development of: 1) a broad foundation of knowledge of the science of psychology; 2) competence in organizing, interpreting, thinking critically and communicating effectively about scientific theories and research; 3) competence in specific research skills and knowledge of career opportunities and 4) appreciation of individual differences and multicultural competency as representatives of the field of psychology.

Our faculty's areas of expertise include clinical, cognitive, social, developmental, personality, learning, physiological, comparative, and behavioral pharmacology.

The faculty emphasizes mentoring both undergraduate and graduate students. Faculty members are actively involved in programmatic research that is designed to include students and provide them with an opportunity to collaborate with faculty on a diverse array of research projects. Psychology faculty members regularly publish research in scientific journals and present their work at international, national, and regional conferences. Finally, our department has a strong record of providing service to the university, community, and profession.

We offer a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science in psychology, a Doctor of Philosophy in experimental psychology, and Doctor of Philosophy in clinical psychology. We currently have 13 faculty, 6 adjunct faculty, 5 clinical affiliates, 266 undergraduate majors, and 51 graduate students involved in our programs.
