The Psychology program at Williams University aims to to convey to students a sense of the excitement in psychology today. We seek to achieve this goal not only through coursework, but also by providing opportunities for students to think critically about, and actually become involved in, research — from the very first course in psychology through the senior year.


Psychology as a discipline exists within a web of related fields, including biology and neuroscience, women’s and gender studies, cognitive science, ethnic studies and other related programs. Many Psychology majors choose to double major or concentrate in a program. Psychology faculty have been centrally involved with several Interdisciplinary Programs at Williams including: Cognitive Science, Leadership Studies, Justice and Law, Neuroscience, and the Program in Teaching.
