Overview

The mission of the Psychology Department at Cal State San Marcos is to provide excellence in undergraduate and graduate education in the science of psychology, the scientific study of behavior in both humans and animals. Our degree program emphasizes psychology as an empirical science and the development of skills that include written and oral communication, information literacy, quantitative and qualitative research methods, and critical analysis of complex problems. We believe that consideration of multicultural perspectives and ethical issues are integral to the study of human behavior and characteristics.
