The Experimental Psychology program provides an excellent preparation and foundation for students wishing to enter a psychology Ph.D. program. Our graduate program is based on a mentorship model in which each incoming student is paired with a faculty member with similar scholarly interests who will advise and mentor the student on his/her academic progress and scholarly activities. Graduates will have a solid background in research design, quantitative methods, and expertise in a specific research area.
The experimental psychology graduate curriculum provides in-depth research experience within specific domains of psychology; cognitive, social, developmental, and neuroscience. This goal is accomplished through a combination of coursework and research experience.
