Student Led

Students are actively involved in their classes, working in research labs, writing grants to conduct their own independent research, and contributing to the local community through internships and research.

Research Focused

Our research laboratories are led by our faculty who work collaboratively with graduate and undergraduate students in answering a wide array of questions concerning human behavior.

ValueS Driven

As a department, we are committed to equity and inclusion in the classroom, our research endeavors, and our interactions with each other. We honor this commitment in our policies and practices, including our PRIME programs (both clinical and research focused).

Our Programs


Our undergraduate program approaches its subject matter as a scientific discipline with emphasis placed on understanding behavior and cognition through experimentation and observation.


Terminal Masters students are admitted into a general experimental program and typically will work with a faculty member from one of our experimental areas, although clinical faculty may also supervise students’ research programs.


We offer doctoral training in psychology that centers on developing an independent research program in a specific domain of interest, including: clinical psychology, cognitive psychology, developmental psychology, and social psychology.
