Psychology majors learn about human behavior and its context. They study motivations, capacities, and human abilities, and put this knowledge to work in the alleviation of human suffering.

Psychology is one of the largest majors at the University of Nevada, Reno with over 400 undergraduates majoring in psychology. Undergraduate students in the Department of Psychology are encouraged and able to participate in the scholarly and applied work of psychology at many different levels -- from taking a wide variety of psychology courses (most of which are taught by PhD-holding faculty members) to actively participating in research laboratories to working (for pay or credit) in one of our many applied projects. We feel we provide a tremendous breadth of training to our students, preparing them well for graduate school and careers in psychology.

The Department of Psychology also offers the Master of Arts degree in general psychology. Doctoral programs are available in general psychology, with concentrations in Behavior Analysis, Clinical Psychology, Cognitive and Brain Sciences.
