What factors shape the way we develop, think, and act? What defines our relationships?
Psychology uses scientific approaches to investigate and understand the human condition.
Psychology at Sewanee
aspires to take that further.
why study psychology at sewanee?
Both in and out of the classroom, Sewanee students do more than learn about psychology—they do psychology. And they do it with increasing attention and commitment to Psychology for the Public Good. How might a deeper, more nuanced understanding of psychology impact the lives of others? And how might that orientation shape the very nature of the questions we ask, the methods we use, and who is involved in that process? Our dedicated faculty equip students with a rigorous foundational understanding of psychological principles and the creative and varied methodological approaches that inform our understanding of thought and behavior, and think together with them in discovering how to apply their knowledge and skills toward creating a more just and equitable world.
