Dr. Michael Kisley

Welcome to the UCCS Psychology Department! We're one of the largest departments on campus: a thriving community of educators, students, scientists and practitioners. Recently each of our three degree programs, B.A., M.A. and Ph.D., were rated as "Exemplary" in a University-wide rating process. Through this webpage you can begin to learn about the opportunities available in our Department. But to understand why we're exemplary you'll need to get involved in our community: take classes with our award-winning faculty, conduct cutting-edge research in our labs and research groups, and practice clinical psychology under the supervision of our faculty and professional staff. We look forward to working with you!
