About the Department

The faculty of the Department of Psychology at Wake Forest University affirm their commitment to three interrelated goals in their roles as teachers, scholars, and members of the Wake Forest community:  excellence in the education of Wake Forest students, an ongoing contribution to the field of psychology, and service to the University and community.

The Department of Psychology  at Wake Forest University stresses both the commitment  to classroom teaching char-acteristics of the liberal arts college and the commitment to
scholarship characteristic of the research university.  Such a dual emphasis is consistent both with the University’s identity as a small comprehensive University and with the faculty’s
philosophy that education and science are intimately related ventures, each of which benefits  from cross-fertilization by the other.

The Department of Psychology currently has 16  full-time faculty members.
