UC San Diego is home to cutting-edge experimental psychologists working on some of the most important topics of our time: cognition, psychological disorders, emotions, language, memory,  and perception. Our research teams are forward-looking and collaborative, working to address issues that affect everyday life.

At the same time, we are training the next generation of scientists and mental health and business professionals. With psychology-related occupations expected to grow by 14% by 2026, our field will have even greater importance in the future.

The UC San Diego Psychology educational experience is unlike any other in the nation, as we create new courses including clinical laboratory research, business psychology, and research practica.
