The experimental psychology program offers three PhD concentrations:

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 concentrations to work with a specific faculty member who serves as the the student’s research mentor. Each concentration offers a broad background in psychology, in-depth study of research methodology and statistics, and advanced coursework in the concentration. Each concentration offers a weekly brownbag 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 1st.
