  • The Psychology Department at Arcadia is committed to the idea of evidence-based psychology. We teach our majors first and foremost that ideas in psychology cannot be judged by their intuitive appeal or by the status of the person proposing them. Instead, as in all the natural sciences, ideas in psychology need to be judged based on the weight of the research evidence.
  • Consequently, we stress critical thinking about theories and research throughout our major. Students in our major are taught to think quantitatively, analytically, and independently about psychological concepts. We do not want students to blindly repeat ideas from class; we want to teach them the tools to critically evaluate those ideas on their own. Ultimately, we hope that those skills will be used in realworld thinking about consumer and medical decisions, media reports, etc.
