Full Program Description

The department offers a graduate program leading to a Ph.D. in psychology. The program offers four main specializations: behavioral neuroscience, cognition, perception, and social/personality.

The main objective of the program is to train a select group of students to become experts in the multidisciplinary field of psychological science. To accomplish this goal, the department takes a mentoring approach whereby the graduate students are apprentices in faculty laboratories, working closely with their faculty mentors throughout their time in the program.
