The Department of Psychology at Lorestan University was established in 2009 in Literature & Human Sciences Faculty and started its activities with admission of students in General Psychology at B.A level. Presently, it continues its academic activities at M.A degree in General Psychology major (18 students), Educational Psychology major (25 students), and at Ph.D. degree in General Psychology and Educational Psychology majors (32 students). This Department crosses boundaries and distinguishes itself among sciences by the broadness of its scope, diversity of its perspectives, and dynamism of its progress to produce graduates who question, identify problems, and possess social responsibility in addition to artistic sensibility and a culture of design. We aim to guide students in developing not only a solid base of knowledge in foundations of psychology and methods of psychological research, but also skills to apply this knowledge and these methods. Persons with a degree in psychology are employed in many different institutions including hospitals, schools, daycare centers, retirement homes, prisons, municipal governments, courts, and police departments.
