On behalf of our faculty, staff, and students, I would like to welcome you to the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of Delaware.
The Department of Psychology was founded in 1916 and psychology has been taught in Newark since 1888-1889. In 2014, we became the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences. The change in name captures both the department’s commitment to the scientific study of the mind and the broad nature of research and training within the department that seeks to understand mind, brain, and behavior across multiple levels of analysis.
Our department is home to about 1300 undergraduate majors and 300 minors. We offer majors in Psychology (BA) and Neuroscience (BS), and students may minor in either discipline. The Psychology program is ranked in the top 12% nationally (U.S. News and World Report). Students in the department are supported by faculty and peer mentoring, a flourishing undergraduate research program, numerous study abroad opportunities, and individualized field placement and internship possibilities.
Graduate training in the department is organized around four concentrations (Behavioral Neuroscience, Cognitive Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Social Psychology) and students from across the concentrations also participate in the university wide Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Program. The Clinical Psychology program is ranked in the top 16% nationally and the Graduate Program in the top 20% nationally (U. S. News and World Report).
Our roughly 40 faculty and 70 graduate students, working in collaboration with our undergraduates, are engaged in ground-breaking research and community outreach. Our research is supported by a state-of-the-art multimodal imaging center housing MRI scanners for work with humans and animals. The department also greatly anticipates the opening of Building X - a new interdisciplinary science building that “will catalyze cutting-edge research related to human disease, developmental disorders, neuroscience and human behavior”- in Fall 2024, and the development of a new clinic training mental health care provider on the STAR campus.
We invite you to explore our website to learn more about all that the department has to offer. If you have questions please contact us or better yet schedule a campus visit. The University of Delaware is situated on a beautiful campus, in the lively college town of Newark, DE. We are within a one to two hour drive of Philadelphia, New York City, Baltimore and Washington DC, and of course the beautiful beaches of the Delaware coast.
I look forward to meeting you!
Professor and Interim Chair
