Most of the primary issues facing the people of the world today — hunger, overpopulation, the continuing threat of war, prejudice, pollution, drug addiction — are people problems; people have created them, and it will be people who must and will find solutions to them. Psychology, as the scientific study of mind and behavior, helps provide the answers to many of these pressing problems.

With a faculty of more than 40, WWU's Department of Psychology offers a program of study that provides a solid foundation in the general concepts and methods of psychology, as well as courses and programs for students in many of the more specialized areas.
