Welcome to the Department of Psychology at Cal State East Bay! This website is meant to help students who are psychology majors and minors or are considering becoming one, those taking classes in psychology, and anyone else interested in learning more about the department. We are a group of dedicated faculty and staff who are here to help you learn about psychological science, navigate the department, and develop plans for a career in psychology and related fields. Our faculty teach and study in many areas of psychology, including neuroscience, mental health, learning, and group interactions. I grew up in the Bay Area and benefited greatly from the public education system here. The college I attended was focused on undergraduate education, much like Cal State East Bay. The opportunities I had to work closely with professors really helped me explore my interests and get started on a career in teaching and research. My goal is to create the same experience for students at East Bay and set you up for a successful and fulfilling life.
