The experimental psychology program area offers three PhD subareas:
The goals of the program are to prepare students in the academic skills that will allow them to be researchers, college-level teachers, and program directors.
Students are admitted to study in one of the three subareas to work with a specific faculty member who serves as the student’s research mentor. Each subarea offers a broad background in psychology, in-depth study of research methodology and statistics, and advanced coursework in the subarea. Additionally, each subarea offers a weekly brown-bag research seminar, guided teaching experience, and a collegial atmosphere in which to study. All students receive funding for at least four years.
The application deadline is December 1.
