Department of Psychology Mission Statement

The mission of the Department of Psychology is to provide students with the foundational knowledge, skills, and dispositions to be successful in their professional pursuits.  Students will achieve high levels of scholarship, develop excellent critical thinking skills, and commit to a lifetime of learning and community service.  The Bachelor of Science degree program in Psychology will provide students the requisite education and experiences for entry level employment in the field and for graduate and professional studies.  The program recognizes and supports the mission of the American Psychological Association (APA) which is  "to advance the creation, communication, and application of psychological knowledge to benefit society and improve people's lives" (APA, 2008).

Learn In a Flexible Environment

We understand that ASU students come from all walks of life.  While we understand that our students are highly dedicated to their academic pursuits, we also recognise that many of our students have other obligations that prevent them from enrolling in traditional classes. Work, family obligations and other life events may make earning your degree in psychology seem unrealistic.  Don't worry, the Department of Psychology has you covered.  All of our classes are offered in both face-to-face and online formats.  You can choose which format works best for you for each class you take.  When you cannot come to us, we will come to you!  All of our online courses offer flexible submission dates for assignments so that you can complete your work at times that are best for you.  Don't let the demands of daily life keep you from the career of your dreams.  The Department of Psychology is here to serve you!

Get the Support You Need

From small class sizes to curricula tailored to your goals, the Department of Psychology is dedicated to student success.   Students are exposed to the fundamental content of the the field of psychology through hands-on, in-class and out-of-class learning experiences including internships and supervised research opportunities.  Our goal is to assist students in developing the skills needed to succeed in the field of psychology.  To accomplish this, each student is assigned to a psychology faculty member for academic and career advisement.  Learn more about your advisor by clicking here.
