Welcome to the Department of Psychology
Our mission is to offer the highest quality academic experience at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Our faculty are committed to teaching and equipping students with the skills and knowledge they need to advance in Psychology and related disciplines.
Our full-time faculty are active researchers and we offer opportunities for students to collaborate on research projects. We are also committed to continued scholarship and service to the profession and to the local community.
We are located in Jacksonville, Florida, a thriving metropolis with a mild climate, abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation, and diverse cultural amenities. As a vibrant changing city Jacksonville also provides us with a living laboratory for our research.
Our department offices are located on the third floor of the Social Sciences building (Building 51). The main office, room 3404, is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., EST.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to Dr. Dawn Witherspoon who is joining our Department this fall. She is a Clinical Psychologist with research interests in the fields of Health and Pediatric Psychology. She comes to us from the University of Florida in Jacksonville and we look forward to working with you! If you would like to learn more about Dr. Witherspoon, please follow this link.
