David Njus

I am fortunate to be able to teach a variety of courses at Luther in areas that I love. These teaching responsibilities include courses in general psychology, social psychology, developmental psychology, the psychology of religion, and statistics. As a psychology major graduate of Luther myself, I know how exciting and rewarding it can be to learn psychological theory and research across the spectrum of the discipline, and to be able to do so in a small-class, liberal-arts environment.

The goal I have for all of my classes is for students to leave with not only greater knowledge of psychological content, but to leave with a greater understanding of how to think like a psychologist—how to go about asking questions the way psychological scientists ask them, and how to go about answering questions the way psychological scientists answer them.
