Department of Psychology

University Hall University of ToledoLocated in University Hall, the picturesque clock tower building on the main campus, the Department of Psychology at the University of Toledo houses the most popular undergraduate major in the College of Arts and Letters: our nationally-ranked B.A. in Psychology (US News and World Report). In addition, we have two nationally-ranked doctoral programs in clinical and experimental psychology.

Faculty in the department are nationally- and internationally-renowned researchers, clinicians, and educators invested in advancing the science and practice of psychology, conducting and disseminating cutting-edge basic, applied, and translational research, and providing a high-quality educational experience for both undergraduate and graduate students.

Our B.A. in Psychology provides both didactic and experiential learning courses. Students have opportunities for hands-on research and externship experiences specific to the students goals. Our mission is to provide students with rigorous training in the science of psychology by presenting historical and contemporary research on human and animal behavior. Students in psychology courses learn to problem-solve and think critically about human behavior, as well as to relate psychological principles to everyday living.

Our graduate program features a nationally-ranked and APA-accredited clinical psychology doctoral program, as well as a nationally-ranked experimental doctoral program that provides training in social psychology, developmental psychology, cognitive psychology, and psychobiology and learning. Students in both programs also have multiple opportunities for advanced integrative training in clinical and experimental psychology through our joint mentoring program and minor specializations in quantitative psychology, health psychology, and experimental psychopathology. Our goal across both programs is to provide superior training in psychological research methods, statistical procedures, and psychological theory, with additional training in the science and empirically-supported practice of clinical psychology provided to clinical students. In addition, an emphasis is placed on the application of research to clinically-relevant problems and behaviors.
