Do you wonder what makes people tick? Do you want to understand the brain and human behavior? Do you want to investigate the human condition? Then welcome to the world of Psychology!

Like detectives of the mind, psychologists investigate the phenomena of perception, cognition, emotion, and personality, seeking to understand the role these mental functions play in society. It is detective work that takes skill, practice, patience, and insight. Fort Lewis College’s Psychology Department offers a creative and practical curriculum tailored to the needs of today’s job market and the ever-changing demands of the profession. Through a top-quality program built on the diverse content of modern American psychology, students also build their skills in research, writing, speaking, and critical thinking – powerful tools in any field or career where human behavior is a factor.
