Psychology is a rich discipline that lies at the crossroads of biology and society. A hub science, it bridges such disparate fields as biology, education, health, business, sociology, marketing, engineering, and neuroscience. Psychological science is integral to understanding the fundamental building blocks of human behavior and necessary for addressing current societal issues. As part of the College of Science at a land grant university, our department’s broader mission is to conduct research that transforms lives and inspires others on our campus, in Southwest Virginia, and across the world.
