Engage with Psychology

Metropolitan State University of Denver is an exciting place to be! And the Department of Psychology is one of the largest, most vigorous academic units on campus with over 1,200 majors in Psychology and Human Development. We also house over 200 students minoring in Psychology. The Department is staffed by 25 full-time faculty in the four core area groups of Clinical, Developmental, Experimental and Social Psychology.

We are joined by over two dozen professionals from the community, teaching as part of our talented affiliate faculty team. Together we provide over 300 classes per year in a variety of on-campus, hybrid, and online course formats. For over forty years we have provided an affordable, comprehensive program in psychology, educating future professionals in Colorado, the US, and the larger world.

In addition, our students have opportunities to join a wide range of active clubs including the Psi Chi Honors Society. The Department's Research Club is one of the most active on campus, with annual peer-reviewed presentations at the Rocky Mountain Psychological Association. We also have the newly formed Clinical & Counseling Club for those interested in learning more about psychology's largest employment field.

Please join us in becoming a major or take a course and explore human behavior for closer look. We look forward to helping you achieve your goals in the field of Psychology.
