An Aspirational Statement on Faculty Mentorship
Mentoring is at the heart of graduate education in science. In May, 2019 our faculty voted to endorse an aspirational statement on high-quality mentoring. In many ways, it's a statement of our shared values and the specific behaviors that we believe constitute high-quality mentorship. Check it out here!
Our graduate Ph.D. program provides concentrations of study in three distinct, but interactive, areas: Clinical Psychology; Cognition and Neural Systems (CNS) and Social Psychology. We also offer three unique interdisciplinary minors that are open to graduate students from all disciplines: Ethology and Evolutionary Psychology (EEP)Health Psychology; and Neuropsychology.  
We also collaborate with the College of Law to provide a joint Ph.D. & J.D. Program.  Students interested in this program should apply to both the College of Law and to one of the three program areas in psychology.
While our graduate programs vary in specific contents and research methods, they all share basic goals that are compatible with our philosophy of providing students with outstanding science-centered education and indepth research training to prepare the next generation of leaders in science and society.
