Welcome to Psychology!

Psychology is a compelling and fascinating field of study. Psychological science attempts to understand the biological, psychological and sociocultural influences on how we think, feel and act. At Washburn, we believe that students with a scientific understanding of behavior will be well prepared to help others and participate as productive, informed members of a democratic society.
