Come see us!

The Psychology department has moved into our new space!  Please come visit us in our new location on the 2nd floor of Berkeley Way West (2121 Berkeley Way at Shattuck).  


Vision, Mission, Goals and Outcomes


Our Vision is to foster the development of self-aware, engaged, well-rounded members of a diverse Psychology Department, campus, and community.


Our Mission is to support students with personal, academic, and professional development by empowering self-directed learning and informed decision making through collaborative mentoring relationships.


Our Goal is for advisors and students to share the responsibility of shaping and actualizing a rewarding educational experience:

  • Advisors by providing resources and guidance
  • Students by taking charge of their personal, professional, and intellectual development.


Learning Outcomes for UG students:


Be able to navigate the Psychology Department website and associated Psychology Majors bCourses site for information pertaining to the major.


Understand the academic requirements of the Psychology major and course sequencing as part of the overall, student-initiated, academic planning process.


Identify opportunities for personal, professional, and intellectual development by reviewing the Weekly Opportunities (web page) and taking advantage of offerings for portfolio building.


Learn to reference various campus resources, reference policies & procedures, and to direct inquiries to the appropriate offices (e.g. Registrar’s Office, Student Information Systems, College of Letters & Science, Student Learning Center, Career Counseling Library, Career Center, University Health Services, etc).


Develop a network and become an active part of the Psychology Department community by attending at least two departmental or student group events per semester.
