Psychology Department Mission

We generate innovative, biopsychosocial scholarship to enhance equity and promote individual well-being and social change. We contribute to our communities through collaborative applied research, teaching, service, practice, and advocacy. Through our scholarship and commitment to inclusive excellence, we prepare the next generation to use psychological knowledge and methods to contribute meaningfully to science and society.

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.
