Psychology at Carleton covers three general areas:

  • Biological and behavioral processes
  • Cognitive studies
  • Social, developmental, personality, and clinical psychology

Senior psychology majors complete a comprehensive project that includes reading, research, or teaching. Most majors undertake independent study projects. Our lab courses allow students to work with a variety of human and animal subjects. Department offices are located in Olin Hall 109-127, while teaching labs are located on the first floor of Olin Hall and the basement of Olin Hall, and in the basement of Hulings Hall for biological psychology courses only.
