Department of Psychology
Dr. Gary Levine
For several required courses, psychology students utilize a computer classroom in Compton Hall that includes access to the leading computer software packages that are most commonly used in the discipline. As a part of their program, psychology majors learn how to conduct computer statistical analysis, as well as interpret and then report findings, which are necessary and desired skills for anyone seeking a job or advanced study in psychology. A large format printer in the lab allows students to produce professional quality posters of their research. Students have presented at local, state, national and international conferences and professional meetings.
Many of the Psychology Department faculty maintain active research programs and have dedicated research lab space including a Forensic Psychology lab, a Cognition lab, and a Psychology of Creativity Lab. Faculty and students also have access to four observation labs and one large testing space that can be used to conduct research projects or facilitate classroom-learning objectives. These labs allow students to engage in meaningful psychology research, putting their classroom training into practice.
