Biographical/Historical Note

The Department of Psychology began in the year 1904 as part of an extension from the philosophy courses being taught at the College. Since then, the department has greatly expanded to include multiple other disciplines such as the humanities and the social sciences as part of its curriculum. Courses are offered in the areas of animal neurophysiology, human language, and developmental and clinical psychology among many others. It co-teaches the Neuroscience program also offered at the College as part of an interdisciplinary approach to the study of human and animal physiological processes. The major includes ten courses and the minor six courses. Both independent study and Honors project proposals are available to qualified high achieving Bowdoin students in the department.
