About the school

The history of psychology in UCD began in 1958 when the university established the first psychology laboratory and the first psychology course in Ireland. Later UCD developed the first accredited undergraduate degree in psychology and pioneered professional training in clinical psychology in Ireland, as well as in other areas of professional psychological practice.  The School of Psychology also incorporates the Centre for Disability Studies, which was established in 2002 and was the first centre of its kind in Ireland.
