Psychology Faculty Profiles

Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and mental processes, including cognition, emotion, and motivation. The Wellesley psychology department is empirically oriented and places a strong emphasis on using scientific methods to investigate aspects of human nature such as how the mind works, how culture and environment interact with individuals over the course of their development, and how we understand ourselves, others, and social interaction.
