Welcome The Department of Psychology is one of the largest majors on the CSU campus and graduates approximately 200 new alumni each year. Our alumni work in many employment scenarios, in private industry and in government. Some continue with their education in graduate, medical or other professional schools. We would love to hear from you as you work to make our world a better place.
Researchers at Colorado State University are making advances in understanding the links between socioeconomic status, sleep and brain development in children. Their approach combines MRI scans of brain structure and function with family surveys on aspects like household income and economic hardship, which can often influence children’s sleep patterns.
“I found pieces of who I am through my experience at CSU. It’s heartwarming to know that I can set my mind to something and can accomplish it. It is rewarding to know that I can help students of all backgrounds to feel their most authentic.”
Sarah Hervey, a second-generation professor, continues to leave a legacy at Colorado State University by creating a brand new course in the Department of Psychology.
