Welcome to Psychology at UNCW

Psychology is a basic and applied science, health profession, and undergraduate liberal arts major. The UNCW Psychology Department supports outstanding undergraduate and graduate programs. Our department is strongly committed to the involvement of undergraduate and graduate students in the research process. Students work closely with our outstanding faculty as junior colleagues to investigate a wide variety of topics including basic brain processes, substance abuse & psychopharmacology, cognitive aging & dementia, traumatic brain injury, forensic psychology & mental illness in correctional facilities, and behavioral analytic approaches to developmental disabilities.

There are many opportunities for students to participate in research and service. We invite you to learn more about all of them!
