Welcome to the School of Psychological and Behavioral Sciences!
On behalf of the faculty and staff, I welcome you to the School of Psychological and Behavioral Sciences (SPBS) at the University of West Florida. Through the study of psychology as a science, the faculty and students evaluate and understand behaviors and experiences, and then apply this knowledge in a variety of settings to solve problems. The education and development of each individual is our primary concern!
We are proud to provide engaging learning opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students through classroom experiences, research projects, and service learning/community activities. Our undergraduate degree program aligns with the American Psychological Association’s curriculum guidelines, and two of our graduate programs are accredited by Master's in Psychology and Counseling Accreditation Council (MPAC), the only accreditation for master’s level applied psychology programs. We are one of the most popular majors at the University of West Florida because of our outstanding faculty, who teach, research, and participate in University and community activities that result in the recognition of SPBS as a leader in the application of psychological science.We genuinely believe in fostering a climate where individuals can discover their strengths and pursue success. In addition to professors, our award winning staff members and Academic Peer Counselors are available to help you; you can reach them at 850.474.2363.
