Welcome to the Department of Psychology at Colorado State University. As a contemporary science and applied profession, psychology represents a rational and systematic attempt to understand human behavior by studying the processes of development, perception, learning, motivation and thinking, and the relationship of these processes both to the physiological and social functioning of humans. As a psychology student you will study a broad coverage of the discipline, have the opportunity to utilize technologies and tools for research, and prepare for a graduate education or diverse career path all under the supervision of field leaders.
