Metropolitan State University of Denver is an exciting place to be! And the Department of Psychological Sciences is one of the largest, most vigorous academic units on campus with over 1,200 majors in Psychology and Human Development & Family Studies. We also house over 400 students minoring in Psychology. The Department is staffed by 25 full-time faculty in the four core area groups of Clinical, Developmental, Cognitive & Biological, and Social Psychology.
We are joined by over two dozen professionals from the community, teaching as part of our talented affiliate faculty team. Together, we provide over 300 classes per year in a variety of on-campus, hybrid, and online course formats. For over forty years we have provided an affordable, comprehensive, and high quality program in psychology, educating future professionals in Colorado, the US, and the larger world.
In addition, our students have opportunities to join a wide range of active departmental clubs, including the Psi Chi International Honor Society, Research Club, and the Clinical & Counseling Club. Each of these groups is active in conducting empirical research, resulting in annual peer-reviewed presentations at professional conferences such as the meeting of the Rocky Mountain Psychological Association. Our students are also active in other high-impact activities, such as serving as research and teaching assistants to faculty members, completing internships at local organizations, and participating in service-learning experiences.
Please join us in becoming a major or minor, or take a course with us and explore human behavior. We look forward to helping you achieve your goals in the field of Psychology.
