Welcome to the Department of Psychology
Psychology is one of the largest departments at CSUSB, with 35 full-time and 15 part-time faculty, 140 graduate students and over 1200 undergraduates. The department offers three undergraduate majors: Psychology, Biological Psychology, and Human Development, and four master's programs: Child Development, Clinical/Counseling, General Experimental, and Industrial/Organizational. In its annual list of America's Best Colleges USNEWS and World Report recognizes the psychology department as one of CSUSB's highly respected programs.
Each of our programs offers first-rate classroom and research instruction, as well as opportunities to collaborate with faculty on a variety of research projects. Among the research projects currently underway are inquiries into mate selection processes; gender issues in the workplace; emotional intelligence; multicultural issues in mental health; animal and human models of drug addiction; reading acquisition; older worker/retirement issues; domestic violence and victimology; self-concept and identity, implicit social cognition, and health disparities in minority communities. In collaboration with Biology, Nursing, Education, Business, Kinesiology, and Social Work, many of our faculty and students are involved in transdisciplinary research through campus centers and institutes. In addition, applied work is available through community internships in a variety of city, county, school, and corporate settings.
