Connecting you to a broad range of psychological expertise

The Department of Psychology at the University of Denver offers a multidisciplinary approach to psychology and close, collaborative student-faculty working relationships.

Our department comprises 22 tenure-line faculty, a number of teaching, research, clinical, adjunct and emeritus faculty, about 40 students in the PhD program and almost 400 undergraduate majors.

We are a research-oriented department that values collaborative, interdisciplinary approaches.  Several themes connect our scholarship across traditional areas and training programs.  These themes are developmental, cognitive, & affective neuroscience; stress, coping, & health; psychopathology; and research with diverse and underserved populations.

Undergraduate program

Our undergraduate program provides a strong and broad foundation in the science of psychology. We design our curriculum to support a wide range of student goals, and we offer many opportunities for involvement and hands-on experiences outside the classroom.

PhD programs

Our doctoral programs include:

  • affect/social
  • clinical child
  • cognitive
  • developmental

In addition, students in any of our doctoral programs can earn a concentration in developmental cognitive neuroscience.

A strength of our department is that each of our specialty areas includes a substantial number of faculty whose interests overlap and complement those of faculty in the other areas. Many of our students work with multiple mentors and with faculty advisers outside their specific area.
