Department of Psychology

Welcome to Avila University's Department of Psychology


Interested in undergraduate or graduate psychology programs in Kansas City? You have come to the right place!

We are part of the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, and are housed in Foyle Hall on Avila's campus in suburban Kansas City, Missouri.

Psychology is the scientific study of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. If you've ever wondered why people behave the way they do, then a psychology degree is for you!

One of the core tenets of psychology is that we can and should use the methods of science to better understand ourselves and others. At Avila, we use this same empirically-driven approach to help students become confident, competent, and compassionate professionals.
