Psychology at UNLV has a long and rich tradition of excellence in research and teaching as well as service to the University, the community, and the field of psychology. Our faculty conduct cutting-edge research on a variety of topics in areas such as child and adult psychopathology, social psychology, developmental psychology, health psychology, cognitive psychology, biology and behavior, and human factors and quantitative methods. One advantage to conducting research in this environment is the diversity of our undergraduate student population and the diversity of the general Las Vegas area. The department also has connections with many community organizations (e.g., private schools, Clark County agencies, and counseling, treatment, medical, and neuroscience centers).
