Message from the Chair

Rebecca Cameron, Ph.D. Department Chair

Welcome to the Sacramento State Psychology Department's web site. Please explore the site to learn about our undergraduate and graduate programs, our dedicated faculty and staff, and our outstanding student groups. Opportunities for learning extend beyond the classroom to involvement in research labs and community settings, where students learn skills that include scientific thinking, research and analytic strategies, multicultural awareness, and ethical decision-making.

Be sure to meet with us in person as well as visiting us online. Prospects peer mentors are available to answer questions and to support your undergraduate experience Monday through Friday in AMD 358, and faculty advisors are available during office hours to discuss your interests and goals.
