Welcome to the PBS website!

The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences (PBS) at UMass is an ensemble about 200 strong, engaged in the theoretical and applied study of biological, cognitive, developmental, and social bases of behavior. We conduct advanced research in these areas and take great pride in our teaching and mentoring on a wide range of topics. In addition, we provide support and outreach services to the university and surrounding communities through the Psychological Services Center and through internship and outreach programs.

I invite you to explore this site to learn more about us, including our research, teaching, and service activities.
