Psychology is a science and health profession that fundamentally pursues the creation of knowledge that increases our understanding of human behavior and enables us to apply this knowledge to important behavioral problems. The UNCW Department of Psychology is dedicated to creating an environment where students can join faculty in the pursuit of creating new knowledge and providing the applied training that improves lives, thus making our community and the world a better place.
The Department of Psychology is always appreciative of the generous gifts we receive from alumni and friends in our community. Gifts to the department help in numerous ways that benefit students and faculty. Donations are used to support scholarships, travel, equipment, and applied learning expenses. Your donations also provide funds to bring visiting scholars to present research, thus enabling us to further enrich the department and the community.
