PSYCHOLOGY AT MSU DENVER

“When the mind is thinking, it is talking to itself.” -Plato

The science of psychology covers the study of the human mind and behavior. Psychologists’ efforts expand the knowledge of our behavior, enable people to function optimally and enhance society for the greater good. 

Psychology students at MSU Denver are well-researched and have a thorough understanding of clinical, developmental and social approaches to psychology. Since you’re interested in a fulfilling career intended to help people, that’s exactly what we’ll do. The Department of Psychology offers its students research opportunities, internship programs and the knowledge and skill set to enter a profession of helping or furthering your education. 

With over 1,200 students declaring psychology as their major and another 200 choosing the minor, we’re one of the largest academic departments at MSU Denver. We’ve provided an affordable, comprehensive degree in psychology for decades, enhancing careers with a vast understanding of human behavior.



“I didn’t think very highly of myself early on. It wasn’t until I got the nudge from my professor to consider research that I found a spark which motivated me to pursue and excel in neuroscience.”
