UNI Psychology Department

Psychology is the study of human and animal behavior (normal and abnormal) and the cognitive, emotional, social, and biological processes related to that behavior. Majoring in psychology can prepare an individual for a number of different roles - teacher, researcher, service provider, administrator, or consultant. Psychology is a diverse field with room for students with many different interests and abilities.

The Psychology program at the University of Northern Iowa exemplifies this diversity. While students graduating with a B.A. in Psychology are required to take a sequence of basic Psychology courses including history, methods and statistics, there are a variety of opportunities for students to engage in independent research, work in community service organizations, collaborate with faculty on research projects and mentor other students in selected undergraduate courses.
