Program Assessment

The Department of Psychology is committed to assessing the efficacy of its program. The coursework in our major is designed to reflect the best practices in undergraduate education in Psychology. Every year, we collect data from courses in our program to see if our majors:

  1. are learning what we want them to learn, and
  2. are showing progress in their knowledge compared to earlier in their academic path.

Adopted from those set by the American Psychological Association’s learning goals for undergraduate education, the department assesses the following five learning goals:

  1. Knowledge
  2. Scientific inquiry & critical thinking
  3. Ethical & social responsibility in a diverse world
  4. Communication goal
  5. Professional development
