The Department of Psychology complements the vision of South Dakota State University and the College of Arts and Sciences to be nationally distinctive and locally relevant through faculty teaching, scholarship and service. Departmental faculty members encourage and prepare students for graduate programs and professional careers by providing a sound knowledge base of psychology as a science and recognition of the multiplicity of viewpoints, schools of thought and subdivisions within the field. Faculty efforts support a challenging curriculum for the development of research skills and appreciation, to strengthen core competencies and understanding of discipline-related perspectives, and to foster opportunities for formal internships and practicums. This curriculum is presented in a manner that develops and enhances critical thinking and communication skills to prepare students for meaningful employment, further scholarship, sociocultural and international awareness, and civic involvement and engagement.
