​The Department of Psychology is committed to providing excellent teaching, mentoring and advising for students in our nine undergraduate major concentrations, two master's programs and five doctoral programs. Moreover, the Department of Psychology is committed to making meaningful contributions to the science of psychology and encourages students to do likewise, and to serve our university, community, and profession so as to enact and realize the mission of DePaul.

The goal of the Department of Psychology is to provide students with an understanding of the methods and content of scientific and applied psychology.​​
