Psychology

Degree Types: PhD

The Doctoral Program in Psychology prepares students to be future leaders in scientific psychology through programs in five areas: clinical psychology, personality & health psychology, cognitive psychology, social psychology, and brain, behavior, & cognition.

Program faculty and graduate students conduct some of the most exciting and influential research being done in the psychological sciences today. Graduate students in our program receive rigorous training in methodology, statistics, and broad content areas in psychology. 

Students take both general courses and those specific to their areas of interest. Students also engage in a series of research projects and assist with undergraduate teaching. Collaboration with faculty members within and outside the student’s area is very common. Many graduates seek academic careers.
