We, of the Psychology Department of the University of Connecticut at Stamford, endeavor to provide the very best in undergraduate education in psychology. The faculty of the Psychology Department are internationally recognized as scholars in their fields of research and locally recognized for their excellence in undergraduate teaching. The Psychology major is the largest undergraduate major in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences on the Stamford Campus. There are currently more than 80 undergraduate psychology majors at the Stamford Campus.

The Psychology Major prepares undergraduates for many diverse career options, including postgraduate studies in psychology, counseling, social work, education, medicine, law, and business. We have successfully placed many students into postgraduate programs at schools such as Harvard University, Yale University, Columbia, Cornell University, New York University, Fairfield University, University of Hartford, the New School, and the University of Connecticut at Storrs for such degrees as Ph.D., PSY.D., M.A., M.S.W., J.D., M.D., M.B.A., and teaching certification. Most, if not all, continue to complete advanced degrees; many of our graduates return to occupy important positions in social, educational, legal, medical, and clinical services in the Stamford area.

The faculty of the Psychology Department are always on hand for advising, counseling, and career guidance. The Psychology Club, whose membership includes both upper division majors and non-majors, as well as lower division students, offers students opportunities to get together for films, discussion, lectures, field trips, and other outings.
