Department of Psychology
We foster a student-centered learning environment, rooted in psychology’s principles and facilitating effective communication skills and social growth.
Psychology is so broad… There are so many career paths you can take and I liked the flexibility of being able to change my path if I want to.
PNW helps me Power Onward with the amount of help available at the university, whether it be clubs, tutoring options, or one-on-one time with professors.
My education at PNW has taught me how to work independently.
PNW is unique because of this collective spirit of acceptance, support and appreciation for diversity that is embodied by the campus community.
