Studying Psychology

Psychology is an interdisciplinary program that examines both the social and scientific bases of behavior, and as a premier research institution, UC Davis is home to many leading researchers in the field. In humans, animals and computer models, and from neurons to relationships to cultures, the science of psychology is focused on understanding how, when and why we do what we do. Psychology majors from UC Davis are prepared to enter fields such as business, government or personnel work, or to pursue higher levels of education.
