Welcome to UNCG’s Psychology Department!

It is a true honor to step back into the role of department head, as we continue to foster a terrific place to learn from each other and excel in our scholarly pursuits. 

The department is exceptional in its ability to connect talent at all levels, from our earnest undergraduates to our blossoming graduate students up to our world-renowned faculty. It is this partnership that allows us to create and disseminate knowledge in the classroom, in the laboratories, and in our community. 

The best word I can use to describe the experiences in our department is “opportunity”. Students have the opportunity to learn from, and work with, faculty directly. In turn, faculty have the opportunity to learn from, and work with, talented students with fresh ideas and a willingness to excel. This combination creates a powerful scholarly environment. 

Whether your interests are in the clinical or experimental areas; in working with children, young adults, or the elderly; or in studying basic research questions or applying knowledge directly to benefit our communities, you will find a welcoming environment here in the psychology department. 

Please follow us on social media [Facebook ; Twitter], and when you visit the Eberhart building, you have a standing invitation to come in and say hello.
