Mission Statement

The Lindenwood University Psychology Department mission is to help our majors attain a base level of competence in understanding the impact that wide-ranging psychological, biological, and social influences have on the mind and on behavior. Consistent with the undergraduate curriculum guidelines promulgated by the American Psychological Association (APA), we seek for our majors to cultivate knowledge, skills, and values consistent with the science and application of psychology. 

Our mission also encompasses a range of knowledge, skills, and values that are reflective of the University’s broader liberal arts mission; these include (again, consistent with APA guidelines) fostering literacy in information technology (e.g., computer proficiency), communication skills, multicultural awareness, personal development (e.g., enhanced self-awareness; insight into the behavior of others), and career planning and development.
