The Psychology faculty at the University of Sioux Falls seek to help students develop an enriched understanding of self, others and the relationship between psychology and faith in God. Psychology is the scientific study of behavior, with particular attention to the cognitive processes that behavior often reflects. Our empirical, research-oriented approach allows the student to seek answers to questions about how and why we behave the way we do rather than to simply speculate.

The Psychology Department is committed to applying research outcomes to address many problems of everyday life.
