Creating understanding and solutions
Applied psychology creates understanding and solutions to enhance lives and address societal problems. In our research, we use science to generate knowledge that guides action and frames policy in the contexts and settings of daily life.
We offer a major and minor in Psychology, as well as a combined master's and doctoral program in Applied Psychology.
COVID-19 Update: With the ongoing PSU campus closure, the Psychology Department offices (Cramer Hall 317) are physically closed until further notice, but we are working remotely and still here to help you.
