Wesleyan faculty have a strong commitment to scholarship, undergraduate teaching, and social engagement. The Department currently has 18 full-time faculty members and several visiting faculty and postdoctoral fellows in the areas of social, cultural, cognitive, developmental, and clinical psychology as well as neuroscience. Faculty members also contribute to interdisciplinary programs in Neuroscience and Behavior, Science and Society, Educational Studies, Environmental Studies, and Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and participate in a postdoctoral program. In addition, Wesleyan has been home to Social Psychology Network since its founding in 1996.
