    The field of psychology can be divided into two major areas: basic psychology and applied psychology. Researchers in the area of basic psychology are interested in understanding basic psychological processes of human beings. It includes experimental psychology, biopsychology, social psychology, psycholinguistics, and developmental psychology. On the other hand, researchers in the field of applied psychology focus on applying psychological knowledge in real situations. Clinical and counseling psychology and industrial and organizational psychology are considered to be in the area of applied psychology. There is a wide range of specialty areas in psychology including human physiology, cognition, personality, developmental psychology, social behaviors, and abnormal behaviors. The faculty members of the Department have been actively eng_1aged in teaching and research on a wide range of topics such as recognition, personality, biology, organizational psychology, clinical psychology, psychometrics, social psychology, developmental psychology, linguistics, and Neuroscience. Diverse research methods, such as laboratory experiments, psychological testing, observations, and quantitative analysis are employed in research with a special emphasis on laboratory experiments.

    Graduates of the Department find various employment opportunities including research institutes, hospitals, consulting companies, marketing firms, market research institutes, governmental positions, and others. Increase in social demands for expertise in psychological knowledge has increased career opportunities for our graduates. However, an advanced degree and further training in psychology is a prerequisite for those who are interested in working in psychological professions such as clinical psychology. Other graduates have advanced their careers in marketing companies and market research firms. PhD degree holders mostly have undertaken academic positions at universities. Recently, employment opportunities in governmental organizations such as research institutes affiliated to the Ministry of Labor, Korea Railroad, and Korea Correctional Service are growing.
