Department of Psychology

Message from the Chair

Dr. Debra Steele-Johnson

The Department of Psychology at Wright State University is in the student success business. As excited as our faculty members are about their research in the science of psychology, they are equally excited about teaching—both undergraduate and graduate students—in the classroom and in research labs. We invite you to join us in exploring how and why people think, feel, and act in all aspects of their lives. A psychology degree helps graduates to be more effective employees (in psychology-related occupations but also occupations in many other fields, such as medicine, law, hospitality, management, and sales). A psychology degree helps graduates have better relationships with others at work and at home and have greater insights about themselves so that they can achieve their full potential. Welcome to the Department of Psychology at Wright State University.
