University of Colorado - Department of Psychology and Neuroscience

The University of Colorado, located in Boulder at the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains, 25 miles northwest of Denver, has an enrollment of more than 29,000 students. Boulder and the University lie at the center of a vibrant community of approximately 90,000 population.

Psychology has been a part of CU’s curriculum since the University’s inception in 1876. Even then course content drew upon the work of prominent psychologists of the day such as William James and John Dewey. During the early years, instruction in psychology was linked to the College of Education. The Department of Psychology was established in 1910 but remained connected to Education until 1922 when Lawrence W. Cole began to expand and develop the curriculum into experimental psychology, physiological psychology, and other areas.

The Department consists of over 50 faculty members, more than 90 graduate students, and over 2000 undergraduate Psychology majors. Graduate students work closely with their faculty mentors and interact extensively with each other. Interdisciplinary study is encouraged and facilitated by several interdepartmental institutes. The University of Colorado is an affirmative action, equal opportunity institution. The Department encourages applications from minority students and has special programs for their support.

The Psychology and Neuroscience Department has excellent laboratory facilities for human and animal research. The animal care facilities include those for mice, rats, pigeons, and snakes. The various labs in the department have much state-of-the-art hardware, including several research/photography microscopes (one with flourescent microscopy capability), CCD video camera for image analysis, cryostats, a liquid scintillation counter, and a slide processor.

In terms of computing facilities, the Computer Laboratory for Instruction in Psychological Research (CLIPR) provides centralized facilities for departmental email and mailing lists, data analysis, model development and simulation, and many common computing tasks. CLIPR also manages several computer labs in the department, including a realtime lab for use by graduate students doing research projects, and a lab for undergraduate instruction. CLIPR has a full-time professional staff.
