Psychology Department Turns 100
By Shilo Rea
The 2015-16 academic year is extra special for one of the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences’ core departments. The Department of Psychology was founded in 1915 with a focus on applied psychology.
Over the past century, it has become a major force in cognitive science, cognitive neuroscience, computational modeling, developmental psychology, social/health psychology and the science of learning.
