University of Arizona Psychology Department

About University of Arizona Psychology Department

Everything we do in Psychology is relevant to promoting health – understanding the basic circuitry of the mind and brain, promoting successful development and aging, and exploring the social, cultural and environmental factors that influence behavior. Our faculty and students are creating innovative solutions to important problems that range from depression, Down syndrome, and Alzheimer’s disease to social problems like stereotyping, cultural bias, and family violence. By partnering with the community, we’re finding new ways to promote healthy lifestyles among people of all ages.

It’s an exciting time for the Psychology Department, with new world-class researchers joining our faculty this year, new state-of-the art research facilities being built, and a new Bachelor of Science major in Psychological Science – it’s not a surprise that we’re one of the top-ranked psychology departments in the country.
