It is a broad field that investigates mechanisms that underlie a wide range of mental processes and behaviors. Researchers are interested in all of the interacting psychological functions - cognitive, affective, behavioral, physiological, social, developmental - that drive and define the human experience. The Psychology program is offered at Washington and Lee University.


In recent years, the general structure of science has been mapped through analysis of citation data from natural and social sciences journals. The purpose of this work is to illuminate patterns of scientific influence within and among the sciences.

Key facts:

  • Cognitive and Behavioral Science, along with mathematics, physics, chemistry, earth sciences, medicine and the social sciences, has been identified as one of seven major hub sciences. The hub sciences generate research with high rates of citation by scientists across many other fields.
  • It can be helpful to conceptualize the field of Cognitive and Behavioral Science in these ways. Its dendrites and axons reach across disciplinary boundaries. It is an integrative scientific field with multidisciplinary foundations, rich linkages to other sciences, and applications within diverse career paths. If it is appealing to position your academic life in such intersections, Cognitive and Behavioral Science may be the major for you.
  • All Washington and Lee University Psychology  majors graduate with considerable research experience and a strong foundation in research design, data analysis, technological skills and professionalism. This is because we know that in the process of conducting research, our majors develop a skill set that is essential to any future professional path they will choose. Research requires skill in organization, problem-solving, collaboration and data analysis. Faculty members in the W&L Cognitive and Behavioral Science Department invest in helping each major to develop these durable skills in our classrooms and labs.
