About the Department of Psychology


kballinAbout1Our department has a young, but solid history of growth and accomplishment. We attribute this to faculty members that have continuously represented the cutting edge of teaching and  research. For example, the UAB Psychology Department has consistently ranked within the top departments nationally in terms of federal (NIH, NSF) research support. In addition to its regular faculty, the department has approximately 75 secondary, adjunct, and clinical faculty members who provide academic and research opportunities and clinical supervision in a wide variety of settings.

We have an
undergraduate program and three graduate specialty programs that include medical clinical psychology, lifespan developmental psychology and behavioral neuroscience.
