Dr. Anna Hatten

Professor of Psychology; Chair, Department of Psychology
Office: Frith Hall
Phone: 434-791-5743

"I was a lazy student," admits Dr. Anna Hatten. "I remember in the seventh grade, the science teacher had to keep me after school. I loved the science, but I wouldn't write answers to the homework questions. Lazy."

Things changed, finally, when she went to college. "When I was in undergraduate school, I got with some friends who were interested in psychology, and the chair of the department was very charismatic. I fell in love with psychology then. After all, psychology is how you understand human behavior." Click for full Bio

At the latest Averett Homecoming event, one recent graduate went up to Dr. Jean Hatten and said: "You know, I'm really glad you made me learn all that spreadsheet stuff [the former student's word, not Dr. Hatten's] — it’s been very helpful in my job."

Hatten has found that the analytical skills his psychology students acquire, as well as specific spreadsheet skills — are, indeed, helpful to all of his students, regardless of what they do immediately following graduation. Click for full Bio


Dr. David Rosenberg

Professor of Psychology, Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Office: Frith Hall 313
Phone: 434-791-5768

All it takes is a moment — simply watch Dr. David Rosenberg walk across campus, notice how often he's stopped by a variety of students, observe how he interacts with them all personally, sincerely … obviously interested in their concerns. That's all it takes to know that Rosenberg is a born teacher.

A natural teacher who was born, interestingly enough, in Mexico City. "On occasion I'll speak Spanish with my mother," he says, "but I don't have a strong command of the language so I don't feel like I'm truly bilingual. I was also raised in northern Virginia." Click for full Bio
