Embracing all aspects of the human experience

Psychology Department at UCCS

The Psychology Department is committed to excellence in teaching and research. Psychology is a science that studies behavior from psychological, biological, and social perspectives. Our discipline embraces all aspects of the human experience - from the functions of the brain to the actions of nations, from child development to care for the aged. In every conceivable setting from scientific research centers to mental healthcare services, "the understanding of behavior" is the enterprise of psychologists.
