The Psychology Department at Bradley University has a distinguished history of preparing students to excel in work and life. Many psychology students pursue careers in mental health fields and other health-related occupations; however, a good foundation in psychology provides skills that lead to a wide variety of exciting career paths.
Our faculty are scholars in their respective fields. Their areas of expertise span the range of the discipline; consequently, all major facets of behavior, from cell to culture, are represented in our curriculum. Laboratory experiences add to the depth and richness of the curriculum.
Outside the Classroom
Abundant laboratory space is available for students to pursue collaborative research with faculty mentors. We also offer an honors research experience.
Practicum coursework permits students to gain applied experience in local clinics, hospitals, agencies, and corporations.
Extracurricular activities involving community service, social events, and leadership opportunities are available through Psi Chi/Psychology Club.
The psychology department turns 65 and celebrates the 90th birthday of Dr. Robert Lowder, a professor emeritus of psychology.
