|Department of Psychology|
Department Chair: Dr. Hiroshi Sasaki
Psychology is the study of individual human cognition and behavior across the lifespan. The Department of Psychology at UWest emphasizes the dimensions of multicultural and cross cultural influence. Course offerings in Psychology at UWest include introductory and advanced instruction in both Western and Eastern systems of psychological theory and practice.
Additionally, the program is designed to promote innovative critical thinkers prepared to meet the needs of a dynamic and complex global community. This is achieved in part by our culturally diverse faculty and staff’s commitment to cultivate an appreciation of cultural differences.
Lastly, consistent with the mission of UWest, we aim not only to cultivate an exceptional level of knowledge and skills in our students, but also aspire to educate the whole person by nurturing social responsibility and integrity in all future endeavors.
