The psychology major at Oberlin is distinctive for its depth, variety, and research opportunities. Interdisciplinary in nature, it often serves as a gateway to other academic and professional programs. Discovery through psychological research is emphasized as psychology majors conduct experiential investigations in laboratory courses, participate actively in faculty projects, and engage in independent studies.
Psychology faculty are both scholars and teachers who devote their careers to making important contributions to their disciplines through collaborative research, and writing. Their research interests include adolescent social relations, psychological disorders, human memory, language, environmental psychology, use of technology and non-traditional treatments, and more.
