Program description

We are a collaborative department with highly-ranked programs in both basic and applied areas of psychology and a strong commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The doctoral program offers tracks in clinical science and psychopathology research; cognitive and brain sciences; counseling psychology; industrial-organizational psychology; personality, individual differences, and behavior genetics; quantitative/psychometric methods; and social psychology. Students apply directly to one of these seven areas of specialization depending on their individual interests and goals.

The requirements vary across areas but all include coursework, mentored research, training in developing and conducting research, analyzing and interpreting data, and interpreting existing theory and research in psychology (i.e., scholarship). Our goal is to produce accomplished scholars and researchers for a variety of occupational roles.
