Psychology at UW-Milwaukee

The Department of Psychology at UW-Milwaukee was founded in 1956. The department, located in Garland and Pearse Halls, is home to 25 full-time faculty as well as adjunct professors, instructors, clinical and academic staff, 72 graduate students, and over 200 undergraduate majors.

We offer graduate and undergraduate training programs in clinical and experimental psychology. Our clinical training program is accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA). Within experimental psychology, we offer training in several areas of research concentration including behavior analysis, health psychology and neuroscience within a traditional broad academic psychology program. Students interested in training in counseling psychology, school psychology or other related applied areas should consult the Department of Educational Psychology in the UWM School of Education.

The department places a premium on excellence in teaching and scholarly research. As a result, these individuals comprise one of the most dynamic and productive groups on the UWM campus. The faculty are recognized experts in their various disciplines as well as accomplished teachers. Our clinic provides psychological counseling and services to both the UWM campus and the greater Milwaukee community. Perhaps the best indicator of our success, however, is the quality of our students.

UWM's undergraduate majors and graduate students have been extraordinarily successful in research and scholarship. Our students compete nationally for scholarships, grants and awards. Together with faculty, they publish cutting-edge research. They consistently secure postgraduate positions at some of the most prestigious universities in the country as well as employment in industry, government and academia.
