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.
(Please note that our department does not offer graduate training in clinical, counseling, or school psychology. Counseling, school and applied educational psychology programs are offered through Northeastern University’s Bouvé College of Health Sciences.)
