The Psychological Science Ph.D. program prepares students for future employment in a wide variety of scientific, academic and applied settings. The Psychological Science faculty consists of members who conduct research in the following areas:
- Cognitive Neuroscience
- Child & Adult Development
Research experience is an integral part of the training and begins in the first year under the guidance of an advisor. During their first two years, students plan and conduct research toward their Master's thesis. Research for the dissertation usually begins during the third year. The program incorporates skills within the major content areas in psychology, and thereby qualifies students to work in a broad range of academic, research and business settings. Students are supported with competitive stipend levels.
