A Focus on Our Students
The focus of the psychology department is to provide breadth and depth in the science and profession of psychology with a commitment to honoring diversity and promoting human welfare. We are uniquely situated to provide a special focus on the peoples and issues of the circumpolar north. The curriculum develops students’ ability to understand how psychology can be used to address social and psychological issues from diverse perspectives through research, cross-cultural knowledge, creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving. We engage our students in developing important professional competencies such as professional written and oral communication, research, and applying science to practical applications in our communities.
