The UMass Lowell Psychology Department enables students to understand human behavior and cognition, contribute solutions to human problems and respond to a changing world.

Why Study Psychology at UMass Lowell?

We offer small classes in a wide variety of subjects. Our students work with and learn from a distinguished group of faculty who are leaders in their fields. Many are nationally recognized authors, editors of journals, investigators on groundbreaking research, presidents of national organizations and collaborators in the Lowell community.

Meet Our Students

  • I chose UMass Lowell because I wanted a program that was well-established, successful and well-organized and that offered a wide variety of classes. I was even given the opportunity to design and conduct psychological research.
