The Department of Psychology at UT Arlington is located within the thriving and booming Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex – currently home to over 10,000 corporate headquarters, and growing. The Department was founded in 1959, first offering a Bachelor of Arts degree, then a Bachelor of Science degree in 1969. In 1971, our graduate program was established which now includes three broad focal research areas: psychological sciences, health psychology/neuroscience, and industrial-organizational psychology. We also emphasize training in quantitative methods in each of these areas in order to ensure that students have a high level of sophistication as they embark on careers as scientists and practitioners. Our faculty are leading researchers in such areas as bullying, creativity and innovation, stress, pain, addictive behaviors, and the use of technology in organizations.
A degree in psychology can open the door to many exciting careers. In fact, U.S. News recently ranked Psychology at #2 on their list of Best Science Jobs. Our talented graduate alumni have found employment in such organizations as PepsiCo, Texas Instruments, AT&T, UT Southwestern, UT Tyler, UNT Dallas, Deloitte Consulting, Cook Children’s Hospital, Baylor Scott & White Health, and many more.
We look forward to providing you with excellent student training and research opportunities as we work to advance science and discovery. Please explore our site and contact us to learn more!
