DEPARTMENT OF PSYCHOLOGY
Welcome to Psychology at GVSU. Students major in psychology for various reasons, and different sets of courses are likely to be appropriate for students with different goals. Students should plan their studies in consultation with an academic advisor early and throughout their college career.
Department Commitment to Mutual Respect
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.
The Psychology Department is part of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

Psychology Research Colloquium
The Psychology Research Colloquium Committee hosts a series of weekly presentations of research in psychological science. GVSU psychology faculty as well as faculty outside the university are invited to present their research. We conclude each semester with Student Presentation Day where GVSU students present the research they have been involved with.
Here is the Psychology Research Colloquium Schedule.
In the Psychology Department, we have many high quality students working in various research labs. On student presentation day, we will hear from four students, each of which will give a short presentation on their research.
