The Department of Psychology
We’ve been leading — and constantly innovating the field — for more than 120 years.
We pioneered one of the world’s first undergraduate programs and its longest-running psychology symposium. We also created one of the country’s first law-psychology programs, as well as a clinical graduate program accredited by the American Psychological Association.
Our award-winning faculty, cutting-edge research and unmatched student opportunities make us one of the strongest psychology programs — not just in the Big Ten, but in the country.
We’re proud to be home to more than 1,000 undergraduate majors and minors and graduate students. They come here because they want to help people, to position themselves for high-paying, rewarding careers, and to leave their individual mark on their industry.
They come here because they want to do big-time research in areas such as neuroscience, social psychology, developmental psychology, and clinical psychology. And they want to be part of the truly groundbreaking work happening at the university’s Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior.
They come here, ultimately, because they’re curious.
Let curiosity move you.
