The psychology department is located in Brackett Hall on the beautiful Clemson University campus, which sits on 1,400 acres in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, along the shores of Hartwell Lake. One of the country’s most selective public research universities, Clemson University serves a uniquely driven and highly accomplished student body.
