Psychology

The Department of Psychology investigates and teaches the science of mental life and behavior. Psychologists study humans and other animals from a variety of perspectives–from the biological substrates of mind and brain to environmental and social influences on behavior. The discipline of psychology provides individuals with the tools for developing effective approaches to solving human problems that every educated person should acquire, regardless of his or her chosen career path. Our undergraduate major, one of the largest at the UA, provides students with a solid grounding in experimental research methods and broad exposure to two domains: (1) Cognition and Neural Systems and (2) Individual and Social Processes. Our graduate program includes concentrations in clinical psychology, social psychology, cognition and neural systems, evolutionary psychology, and psychology, policy and law.
