Excellence in teaching and research are hallmarks of the faculty in the Department of Psychology at Cal Poly Humboldt. Faculty members are drawn to the university by its stellar reputation for quality instruction, smaller classes, and excellent students, as well as the scenic beauty of a campus nestled between a redwood forest and the Pacific Ocean.
