Welcome from the Chair

Welcome to the UMBC Department of Psychology Department Website.  We are glad you decided to drop by electronically. If you are interested in why people, groups, organizations, systems, and cultures think, feel, and act the way they do, you should consider joining us as we seek answers through classes, research, and community engagement that spans the smallest individual neuron to the largest community networks.

Anne Brodsky Professor and Chair
