Key Features

Firstly, the faculty in the Psychology program at Wake Forest University are dedicated to being recognized scholars in their chosen fields, advancing knowledge of human and animal behavior through theory-building, research, writing, and publication. In addition to devoting our professional lives to the betterment entailed by this dedication, we want to immerse our students in an environment where research and its associated activities are a core part of daily life and where they can learn the basic skills for conducting research. In such an environment, the students can learn first hand that the very process of gaining knowledge is an exciting and valuable endeavor.

Secondly, we want to bring the faculty dedication and enthusiasm to the classroom as well as the laboratory. We want our students to learn from scholars whose own research advances the field in significant ways. It is important that students be exposed to teachers from whom they can learn to think meaningfully about the fundamental problems of the field. 

Beyond this, we hope the students may learn how our field relates to the broader society at large and how it may contribute to the solution of larger social problems. Such learning occurs in the daily give-and take of both classroom and laboratory.
