Department

Our Department is part of the School of Mind, Brain, and Behavior (MBB), and is housed within the College of Science, in keeping with its strong research-oriented approach and scientifically-derived knowledge base.

Psychology is by its very nature interdisciplinary, and its faculty and students interact and collaborate naturally with other MBB programs and departments—Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, and Speech, Language and Hearing Science—as well as with other academic units across campus.

The Psychology Department offers an exciting array of courses and research experiences and also provides many opportunities for students to serve in the broader University and Tucson community.

Our faculty members of the Ph.D. Psychology program at University of Arizona are engaged in leading edge research in a large number of areas, as indicated by the volume and impact of their publications and their prominence in other ways. Our research activities are fully integrated with our instructional activities. Only a small number of Ph.D. students are admitted each year, enabling students to work closely with faculty members.

Courses include:

  • Issues of Psychological Theory and Research
  • Three graduate level courses in Statistics and/or Research Methods

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
