Overview

We view our students as part of this scholarly community. Psychology classes at Otterbein University are generally small, and many upper-level classes have fewer than 10 students. Many of our classes are hands-on – you may be out in the community teaching adults stress-management skills, collecting data in the laboratory, or working with children in the local schools. Recognition of and appreciation for diversity and cultural issues are important dimensions of our teaching and practice.

The Psychology House is the heart of the department. Walk right in - there's no need to knock. The secretary's office and faculty mailboxes are on the first and second floors. There is a small reception area on the first floor where students take make-up exams, watch video assignments, or visit while waiting to see a faculty member.
