Experimental Psychology Program

The Experimental Psychology Ph.D. program prepares students for employment in a wide variety of scientific, academic and applied settings. The program follows an apprenticeship model where students are exposed to individualized research experiences within the laboratory of his or her supervisor and, in many cases, other faculty as well. For students who are interested in pursuing an academic career we offer a unique opportunity to take part in a teaching apprenticeship. The goal of doctoral training in the Experimental Psychology Ph.D. program is to produce research psychologists capable of productive and creative scholarship and academic activities in their chosen areas of interest. Graduates of our program are employed in both academic and non-academic positions.
