Welcome to Psychology at GVSU
Psychology covers such a broad range of topics that psychologists specialize in many different areas, such as clinical psychology, counseling psychology, developmental psychology, physiological psychology, neuropsychology, industrial-organizational psychology, educational psychology, experimental psychology, cognitive psychology, social psychology, and cross-cultural psychology. The interests and training of the faculty members in the department cover all of these areas, so we are able to offer a wide range of courses in the undergraduate curriculum.
