Ireland - Limerick, Dept of Psychology

Established in 2007, the Department of Psychology is one of six academic units in the Faculty of Education and Health Sciences. Our vision is to be internationally recognised as a centre of learning and research that advances knowledge, addresses contemporary social issues and improves people’s lives.


Using social psychology as a lens, the Department focuses on exploring and understanding the key social issues of our times. Through our expertise in social psychology (i.e., social identity, social cognition, social inclusion and marginalisation), we have become one of the leading contributors to social/psychological literature in Ireland and abroad.

Clinical and health psychology and experimental psychology are key developing areas of our research agenda, and most of our research students and members of staff participate in one or more groups associated with these emerging research themes.
