The Department of Psychology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is one of the oldest and most prestigious psychology programs in the nation. There are six concentrated areas of study within the psychology graduate program: clinical, cognitive, developmental, law psychology, neuroscience and behavior, and social-personality.
Faculty provide high-quality research, teaching, and practice training experiences in these six areas. The department includes a nationally-reputed joint program in law and psychology, and one of the first APA-accredited clinical psychology programs in the country.
Excellent computer facilities, laboratory space, and research support are available through the psychology department. The department only accepts students who are interested in obtaining a Ph.D.; therefore, all students earn a master's degree en route to a doctoral degree.
