Ph.D. in Psychology
The graduate program in psychology offers a Ph.D. program in experimental psychology and an interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Cognitive Sciences, both designed to prepare scholars for entering scientifically-oriented research and/or teaching jobs. All students are admitted to the Ph.D. program, which is comprised of a pre-master's and a post-master's part. The program is not designed to grant a terminal master’s degree. Instead, it is expected that students will proceed to Ph.D. study.
