About me

Location UP Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines
Introduction As early as 1910, two years after the University of the Philippines was founded, psychology was being taught at the Department of Philosophy and Psychology, College of Liberal Arts. Soon psychology separated and became part of the College of Education when the college was created in 1918. Under the able leadership of Dean Francisco Benitez, the UP modelled for the entire country the curricular utilization of psychology in education. In 1959, the Department of Psychology was transferred to the College of Arts and Sciences and in 1983 it clustered together with the College of Social Sciences and Philosophy.
