The Department of Psychology has a threefold mission: To answer questions on the cutting edge of psychology research, to provide training to undergraduate and graduate students in the broad fields of psychology, and to provide individuals and the community with psychological services based on the best current practices in psychology.
Located in the College of Liberal Arts at Temple University, the Department of Psychology is a vibrant center of scholarship, research and teaching. This mission is accomplished by having top-quality scientists and excellent teachers on our faculty. We also employ specialized psychologists practicing in the Philadelphia region as adjuncts to provide additional educational opportunities for our students.
