About the Faculty & Other Instructors

TENURED/TENURE-TRACK PROFESSORS

Core Faculty: The faculty committed to undergraduate education are a diverse group with a variety of theoretical orientations and professional interest areas including Clinical Psychology, Neuropsychology, Cognitive Psychology, Physiological Psychology, Experimental Psychology, Developmental Psychology, and Social Psychology. We offer a strong commitment to excellence in teaching, active research and service programs, and a team of advisors who are dedicated to helping our students achieve personal and professional goals.


Other Faculty: There are many faculty in the Department who may teach within the Bachelors of Science in Psychology Program. They are available to answer questions about careers in the areas of Counseling Psychology, School Counseling, and School Psychology.

PART-TIME INSTRUCTORS

Faculty Liaison Program: All part-time instructors are assigned a full-time professor to serve as their Faculty Liaison. The Faculty Liaison is a resource for the instructor, may be contacted by a student if there are issues that cannot be resolved with the instructor directly, and will provide instructive feedback to the instructor. This program is designed to promote excellence in teaching in all instructors. There are two main types of part-time instructors:

1) Adjunct Faculty: Many courses are taught by community professionals who provide their part-time teaching services to the Department.

2) Graduate Student Instructors: Students working on their doctorates in Counseling or School Psychology may teach courses in the Bachelors Program after they complete a rigorous course designed to prepare them for this activity.
