Graduate Programs

Our graduate programs will provide graduate students with the knowledge, skills, and experiences necessary to become successful consumers and producers of psychological science. Psychology is a broad discipline that interfaces with the biological and social sciences and our program is organized around two concentrations that together encapsulate the breadth of psychological science: (1) Biological and Basic Processes and (2) Social and Behavioral Processes. These concentrations represent two broad areas that focus on phenomena from different orientations in moderately overlapping but distinguishable content areas. Students seeking the MS degree will be broadly exposed to the content and methods in both concentrations. Students seeking the Ph.D. degree will have similar broad exposure to both concentrations which will be extended by an intensive inquiry specialized in one concentration. As a result, students in the Ph.D. degree program will apply for admission in one concentration (either the Biological and Basic Processes concentration or the Social and Behavioral Processes concentration) whereas students in the MS degree program will be required to distribute their course work across these concentrations.
