From the very beginning, we’ve played a prominent role in the University’s push for excellence in teaching and research. As FIU continues its trajectory toward recognition as one of the nation’s top urban research universities, we will continue to be in the forefront of this advance. We seek to achieve an innovative and integrated balance between basic science and application in ways that serve the people of Southeast Florida, the state, the nation and the international community by imparting knowledge through outstanding teaching and by creating new knowledge through its strong research programs.


Our undergraduate curriculum prepares students to continue on to postgraduate degrees and successful careers. We’re also at the leading edge in graduate education at FIU, gaining national prominence thanks to our outstanding faculty and programs.


Housed in an urban university in a global city on the cutting edge of 21st-century change, the Psychology Department focuses on outstanding research and innovative teaching while drawing on strengths and resources unique to Southeast Florida. Addressing the urban and multicultural issues in this region, we have made substantial contributions to the development of excellent programs that provide hands-on experience for our students through labs and independent study.


We are dedicated to learning more every day about the mind and its connection with behavior, communication and development in order to improve health and wellness for all.

Make a Difference, Invest in the Future

  • Students

    Your contribution will help students committed to psychology meet their academics goals by helping via scholarships, internship and networking opportunities.

  • Research

    Mental health problems are more costly to society than any other health problem. With more support, we can increase the number of hours that we offer our mental health programs and treatments to reach more children and their families and better assist them to cope with traumatic events and behavioral disorders.

  • Community

    Your investment goes to facilities like our neuroimaging center, which participates in landmark studies for brain development, as well as advocacy initiatives for women in STEM.
