Psychology professor David LaPorte not only shares his passion for studying the brain with his students, he inspires his students to find their own academic passion and unlock their potential.

Involving their students through scholarship, research, and hands-on practice

The 25 professors that make up IUP's Psychology Department believe in the power of involvement. Highly motivated in their research, their community work, their private practice, and their contributions to regional and national associations and conferences, these professors encourage student participation in their endeavors.

This enthusiasm is contagious. Students join our faculty at conferences, at international research projects, and help coordinate and manage IUP's own research conferences.

All psychology majors work with an advisor from the Psychology Department.
