Department of Psychology

Applied Learning

Missouri Western is Missouri's official Applied Learning University, and the Psychology department is proud of our long history of leadership in Applied Learning.

Students have plenty of opportunities to explore the interesting and varied areas of Psychology. At Western, 100% of Psychology majors are engaged in research. Majors often work one-on-one with faculty members on research projects, and small research teams are also common in the department.
