Department of

Psychology and Education

The Psychology Department at New Mexico Tech is a small but robust area of research. The faculty members offer students a variety of laboratory opportunities to examine how the brain works, pathology, and other areas of applied psychology. The rigorous course work pairs well for students also interested in biology and chemistry.
