The primary research interests of the University of Houston's graduate program in Social Psychology are currently concentrated around Health Behavior and Close Relationships. Our research on health behavior includes the prevention of substance abuse and other risk behaviors among adolescents, as well as stress and its effects on the immune system.
The social psychology curriculum is directed at developing the student’s strength in quantitative methods and theoretical, conceptual, and biological perspectives that are central to advanced training in social psychology.
Faculty members in the program have continually received support from both federal (e.g., NIH) and local agencies.
