Lectures & Colloquia

Research Colloquia

a guest lecturer addressing a faculty and student audience

The Department of Psychology sponsors public lectures by outstanding members of the psychology community each semester. Most are scheduled for the first Friday of each month.

These lectures are typically attended by faculty and graduate students in psychology, but undergraduate students and persons from other departments and the Tuscaloosa community are always welcome. These presentations afford students a unique opportunity to hear about current advances in a wide variety of research and clinical areas.

Upcoming colloquia are usually advertised in Gordon Palmer Hall and on our events calendar.

Students are welcome to attend any and all research colloquia that are of interest to them.

Endowed Lecture Series

Each year, the Department of Psychology hosts two lectures presented by nationally known scholars in psychology:

  • The Basowitz Lecture is typically scheduled for the fall semester and focuses on personality and social psychology.
  • The Dinoff Lecture is typically scheduled for the spring semester and focuses on research in clinical psychology.

As with all of our scholarly lectures, these featured lectures are free and open to the public.

Interprofessional Research Breakfast

The psychology department sponsored its first interprofessional research breakfast to showcase different research areas the department is currently working on.
