The Department of Psychology welcomes you. We are committed to excellence in teaching and research and are proud of the accomplishments of our faculty, students, and graduates. We are a research-oriented department where our priority is the discovery of new knowledge and understandings of the individual and their behavior, the application of that knowledge to the betterment of physical, mental, and social health, and the transmission of that knowledge to our students and the community. On our pages, you will find information about our undergraduate B.A. and B.S. degrees in Psychology and our graduate Doctoral and Masters degree programs. You’ll also find information on the Psychology faculty, their areas of interest and research activities. Please look through our website.

As members of the University of Texas at El Paso community, we acknowledge that we are meeting on unceded Indigenous land. We would like to recognize and pay our respects to the Indigenous people with long ties to the immediate region: Lipan Apache, Mescalero Apache, Piro, Manso, Suma, Jumano, Ysleta del Sur Pueblo, Piro/Manso/Tiwa Indian Tribe of the Pueblo of San Juan de Guadalupe, and Tortugas Pueblo. We also acknowledge the nations whose territories include present day Texas: the Carrizo & Comecrudo, Coahuiltecan, Caddo, Tonkawa, Comanche, Alabama-Coushatta, Kickapoo, and the peoples of Chihuahua and northern Mexico from whom most/many of our students descend, such as the Rarámuri, Tepehuan, Wixarrika and Nahuatlaca peoples. Finally, we recognize all of the American Indian and Indigenous Peoples and communities who have been or have become a part of these lands and territories here in Paso del Norte, on Turtle Island. The University of Texas at El Paso honors your history and cultures and we seek greater awareness of the myriad ways in which your legacy can guide us in fruitful partnerships and mutually fulfilling relationships.
