The Department of Psychology and Behavioral Sciences is administratively housed in the College of Education, located in Woodard Hall. The Department offers a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and advanced degrees in five areas: The Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology, and Masters’ degrees in Counseling and Guidance and Industrial/Organizational Psychology. The department is comprised of 18 full-time faculty members, including the chair of the department. The faculty in our department is diverse, with approximately equal number of male/female faculty and many faculty coming from different regions of the country.
The three core faculty members for the counseling program provide primary leadership and direction for the program. Other departmental faculty members teach foundations courses and/or serve on committees, broadening the scope of mentors and faculty resources available to students. In addition to departmental faculty members, affiliated staff members from practicum sites and other area clinical settings contribute to the Master’s degree in Counseling and Guidance by teaching courses, and serving on committees.
