Psychology at UHCL

The Psychology programs at UHCL represent many of the diverse fields in Psychology.

Through the Department of Psychology, we offer an undergraduate degree in psychology that broadly prepares students to enter careers in fields such as social services, human resources, public relations, sales, law enforcement, government, education support services, and many more. The undergraduate degree also provides a solid foundation for graduate study in psychology.

A master's degree in General Psychology can further prepare students for working in human or government services. This degree will also prepare students for jobs that require technical skills in behavorial research and statistics. Students can also meet requirements to teach psychology to undergraduates.

Students have the option to specialize in their graduate degree with sub-plans in:

  • Applied Cognitive Psychology (Human Factors)
  • Applied Social Issues
  • Behavioral Neuroscience

Through the Department of Clinical, Health, and Applied Sciences, we offer graduate programs that train people to conduct therapy in different settings. These include:
