Psychological scientists use empirical methods to understand behavior, broadly defined to include not only overt behavior but the actions of the mind and brain. Graduate study in psychology at Western is designed to produce scientists who use diverse approaches to further our understanding of brain function, cognitive development, social interaction, how humans behave in the workforce, personality, psychopathology (i.e., maladaptive behavior), and many other domains.
Increasingly, psychological scientists throughout the world study domains that transcend traditional scientific boundaries; hence, our faculty and graduate trainees have expertise in computer programming, molecular biology, advanced mathematics and data modeling, and other fields historically viewed as somewhat distinct from psychology.
