Center for Psychology
The Center for Psychology represents a diverse and highly interdisciplinary field
of study that involves the application of systematic methods of inquiry to the exploration
of behavior, mental processes, and social relationships. Our mission is to educate
students in the core knowledge and skills of the discipline of psychology, together
with Goucher’s unique perspective that reflects a history and tradition of respecting
diverse viewpoints and methods and connections with other traditions and disciplines.
Across the varied perspectives represented in our Center, we strive to create an open,
supportive, challenging and vibrant learning culture. We value sharing our passion
for the field of psychology through close and active mentoring inside and outside
of the classroom. We encourage and model experiential learning in the form of community
engagement, social justice, active involvement in research, collaborative construction
of knowledge, and self-directed exploration. Students cultivate the skills, knowledge,
and attitudes that will position them well to facilitate their own and others’ holistic
development and well-being. The Center for Psychology offers a major and minor in
