Dr. Henseler is Professor of Psychology.

Since coming to the university in 2001, Dr. Henseler has shared her enthusiasm for psychology with traditional, non-traditional, and graduate students, teaching courses on psychology’s history, content areas, and research methods. She has administered the psychology program for working, adult students, mentored student researchers who regularly present their research at conferences, and in the past several years has co-led study abroad courses in India and Spain. Dr. Henseler is currently teaching traditional undergraduate students in the School of Behavioral and Social Sciences.  Her areas of interest are child development, especially children’s theory of mind and developing narrative skill, and the psychology of religion. Her current research is on religious identity development in emerging adulthood.  She is currently working with colleagues in Morocco on that research project.
