Read more about the Psychology major. The UW Psychology program for undergraduate majors stresses scientific and statistical reasoning skills that help students evaluate data, claims, and theories in both the academic and popular literatures. We provide undergraduates research participation, applied fieldwork and supervised teaching opportunities. Students make use of what they learn in various career paths including areas such as counseling, education, and basic research. We also provide opportunities for a wide range of UW majors to include psychology as part of their general education.

Whether you are a prospective student or a declared psychology major, Tracy, Vicky and I are eager to help you achieve your academic goals. I've worked at the University of Washington since arriving in Seattle in 1988, and have spent the majority of that time happily here in the Psychology Department. I enjoy my job because it gives me the opportunity to work one-on-one with students and also to look at academic advising issues from a broader, systemwide perspective. Home for me is beautiful Vashon Island , where I enjoy running, walking, swimming, and watching my son play baseball and football. My family and I share the "ranch" with three dogs, two goats, a llama, and a miniature donkey. My UW "home" is Guthrie Hall so please stop by for a visit! Vicky Hansen, Senior Academic Advisor Welcome! I want to encourage you to look around our website and invite you to let us know when you have questions. We are happy to help you. I love working in the psychology department and have enjoyed working with students throughout their undergraduate experience. I started my career at Purdue University where I earned a masters degree in a counseling-based program called College Student Affairs. Subsequently, I have worked at Truman State University (Missouri) and at the University of Central Florida. I moved to Seattle in 2003 with my two fat cats. In 2012, I got married and became a stepmother to two darling boys and one skinny cat. I work with students who are interested in the honors program and with the admissions process into the major. Tracy and I coordinate the applying to graduate school support group in the Autumn quarter.
