History of excellence

Over 60 years of psychology

Psychology has been a separate department at Queens since 1951 when it was established in Lennoxvale and where it remained until the early 1990s. George Seth was appointed as Founding Chair of Psychology at Queens in 1958 and he lead the Department until he retired in 1971.
