Psychology at the University of Hawaiʻi

Thank you for your interest in the Department of Psychology at UH Mānoa. Established in 1920, our department continues to be a leader in training exceptional graduate and undergraduate students. Our department is also home to outstanding faculty whose breadth provide students with many opportunities to explore their scholarly interests.

The Department of Psychology has over 20 faculty who provide exceptional training to graduate students across three broad program areas: 1) Clinical Studies; 2) Cognition, Neuroscience, and Social; and 3) Community, Cultural, and Developmental. In addition, undergraduate students have the option of pursuing a BA or BS degree. Students can also take advantage of a hybrid online option for the BA degree, where the majority of psychology courses are completed online. The culturally diverse context of Hawaiʻi provides the backdrop for innovation, which has led to important contributions across the many disciplines of psychology. As we approach 100 years of service to the university and community, we look forward to continuing this tradition of excellence.
