We are a dynamic unit within a comprehensive research-oriented institution. Consistent with the university's mission and core values, our department is committed to providing an educational experience of exceptional quality to students from internationally diverse backgrounds.

Our faculty members are actively engaged in innovative research that provides an opportunity for students to learn about rigorous scientific methods, while asking empirical questions about human behavior and mental processes. Emphasis on exploring these questions from the lens of an African diasporic experience is a unique aspect and strength of our program.
