The teaching philosophy of the psychology faculty of DeSales University can be summed up in the following way: understanding the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors of others is critical to the process of evolving into compassionate, empathetic, and full human beings. We believe such an understanding can be nurtured through the study of psychology. We also believe that a careful consideration of more than a century of the scientific findings of psychological research give us all - not just our students - some fundamental lessons about how to live our lives in ways that will enable us to be forces of positive change in the world. We are passionate about engaging each student as a uniquely gifted individual, and we are committed not only to the intellectual, but also the moral and cultural development of our majors.
