Psychology at Carleton covers three general areas:

  • Biological and behavioral processes,
  • Cognitive studies,
  • Social behavior, development, personality, and clinical psychology.

Senior psychology majors complete a comprehensive project that includes reading, research, or teaching. Most majors undertake independent study projects. Our lab courses allow students to work with a variety of human and animal subjects. Department offices are located in Old Music Hall, while teaching labs are located in the basement of Concert Hall, and in the basement of Hulings Hall for biological psychology courses only.
