The Department of Psychological Sciences, the largest undergraduate department at Loyola, teaches students the latest theories using advanced tools to interpret human and animal behavior. Our department is housed primarily in Monroe Hall on the third floor. There are currently eight full-time faculty members in the department as well as one visiting assistant professor.
As individuals and as a society we grapple with family, work, and leisure issues daily. The Psychology program exposes students to the scientific study of behavior and encourages an increased understanding of the behavior of humans and animals. Students who complete the Psychology major requirements receive a Bachelor of Science degree. Learn more about our programs of study »
