Welcome to the UK Department of Psychology!

The Department of Psychology is a diverse community of world-class researchers, excellent teachers, diverse and highly trained graduate students, engaged undergraduate students, and committed staff. 

Our undergraduate program includes over 1,200 majors and 400 minors.  Our majors receive a broad education, taking courses in every major disciplinary category in psychology.  Each year, 50 or so students conduct original research with our faculty.  Their experiences often take them beyond the discipline of psychology into our faculty’s collaborations in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, public health, engineering, communications, and education.  Most importantly, all of our faculty actively teach in our undergraduate curriculum so that students can directly benefit from their life experiences, training, and current research programs. Our students go on to success in the field of psychology, but also medicine, law, and many other career paths.
