Psychology Graduate Program

Department of Psychology Ph.D. Overview

We offer a single doctoral degree which may be earned in one of the following programs: clinical, cognitive and brain sciences, developmental, quantitative, or social psychology. Students admitted to one of these 5 programs enter with the expectation of continuing graduate study through the Ph.D. as the department does not admit terminal master's students.

A clinical child psychology training program has been developed for doctoral students in an interdepartmental program with the Department of Applied Behavioral Science. Those interested in applying to the Clinical Child Graduate program.

Please view our Doctoral Program Profile (PDF) which includes data on faculty, enrollment, admissions, financial support, the number of degrees completed and postdoctoral plans.
