Department Head’s Welcome

Welcome to the University of Arizona’s Department of Psychology.   Our Department is part of the School of Mind, Brain, and Behavior (MBB), and is housed within the College of Science, in keeping with its strong research-oriented approach and scientifically-derived knowledge base. Psychology is by its very nature interdisciplinary, and its faculty and students interact and collaborate naturally with other MBB programs and departments—Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, and Speech, Language and Hearing Science—as well as with other academic units across campus.  The Psychology Department offers an exciting array of courses and research experiences for both undergraduate and graduate students and also provides many opportunities for students to serve in the broader University and Tucson community.  Our website is designed to provide an introduction to the people, places, and events that constitute the life of our department, and to help you select among the many options available to you as you embark on your academic career.  Again, welcome to the department. I wish you every success in the coming year.

Best regards,

Lee Ryan
Professor and Head
Department of Psychology
