The mission of the psychology program is to provide students with a bachelor’s degree in psychology within a liberal arts tradition. Thus, our program contributes to IU Kokomo’s mission of providing undergraduate programs leading to the baccalaureate degree for residents of North Central Indiana. The psychology program strives to help its’ majors understand the major theoretical approaches to human behavior and cognition; develop abilities to gather, analyze, synthesize, and apply psychology information; develop a healthy skepticism about conclusions presented without supporting data; and communicate more effectively. The psychology degree program seeks to provide students the opportunity to develop and achieve their personal and career aspirations, including opportunities for engaging in research with faculty, independent research, and practicum experiences within the community. Thus, our program contributes to IU Kokomo’s mission to enhance research and develop partnerships between our degree and various community programs.
