Graduate study in psychology at the University of Houston is a blend of the traditional and the contemporary. We share with many psychology departments a traditional commitment to provide an excellent education in basic psychological theory and methods. The department also has an explicit commitment to focusing that scientific education on solving problems of society. This focus qualifies our graduates for a wide variety of professional positions in academic, research, or service settings such as industry and medical centers. Our location in Houston, with its large and rapidly expanding population of governmental, medical, business and corporate entities and university installations, as well as its diverse population, creates multiple needs and opportunities for psychological science and application. The Psychology Department interacts expensively with Houston's business and medical communities. It takes advantage of the proximity of these resources, sponsoring internships with major corporations and both public and private health facilities.
