About this course

The study of Psychology examines such issues as how the brain works, how society functions, how children learn, and how mental states influence the physical functions of our bodies.  Many of today’s problems, including AIDS, heart disease, pollution, and violence, are consequences of human behavior. Psychology offers students the tools to recognize, understand, and change these problems, as well as our attitudes toward them.

Our program reflects the diversity of the discipline as well as the interests of faculty and students. With courses ranging from neuropsychology to lifespan development, individuals and groups, and adaptive and maladaptive behavior, we provide a strong foundation for graduate and professional studies such as education, counseling, social work, clinical practice, business, and law. We encourage students to participate actively in faculty research, earn credit through internships, gain a global perspective through education abroad, and lay the foundation for future graduate study through participation in our departmental honors program.

How to Apply


Don't submit your transcripts to UC at this point, but refer to them as you fill out the application to ensure the information you enter is accurate.

Test scores.

If you're a freshman or sophomore applicant, you'll have to include your scores from the ACT with Writing or the SAT Reasoning Test. (If you're applying for fall, be sure to complete these tests by December). All applicants should report scores for any SAT Subject Tests, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, TOEFL or IELTS exams they have taken.
Annual income for last year and the current year (your parents' if you're a dependent; your income if you're independent). This is optional unless you're applying for an application fee waiver or for the Educational Opportunity Program.

Social Security number, if you have one.

We use this to match your application to things like your test score report, final transcript(s) and, if you're applying for financial aid, your Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

Citizenship status.

You must enter your country of citizenship (or "No Selection"). If your country of citizenship is outside the United States, you'll need to provide your immigration status and your visa type.

California Statewide Student ID (optional)

Each K-12 student in California public schools is assigned an ID number. If it's not printed on your transcript, ask your counselor or registrar.
