Welcome to the Department of Psychology

Our program fosters the learning of theory through “hands-on” experience.


Laboratory exercises enrich your understanding of neuroscience, clinical psychology, developmental psychology, statistics, biological psychology, learning, cognition, sensory mechanisms, comparative psychology, psychophysiological investigation, tests and measurements, behavior modification, and experimental social psychology.


Every senior at Washington College completes a Senior Capstone Experience project. This takes the form of an original research investigation carried out under the supervision of a faculty member.
