School of Psychology [215]

 

UCD School of Psychology is part of UCD College of Human Sciences and is a leading centre for research, teaching and professional training in the many branches of inquiry that together comprise the intensely interesting, and socially relevant discipline, of Psychology.

Psychology is undergoing profound and exciting developments both as field of study and as a profession. The new UCD School of Psychology encompasses not only the study of Psychology at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, but also the vibrant and dynamic field of Disability Studies. Our new School is a partnership of the former Department of Psychology and of the Centre for Disability Studies.
