Prospective Students



Welcome future horned frogs!

Psychology is one of the five most popular majors for incoming students. The psychology minor is also included in the top five minors across the University. Students learn to use scientific methods to study the behavior of animals and human beings and can pursue a BS or BA in psychology, or an interdisciplinary BS in neuroscience or child development. A BA and minor are also offered in child development.

Graduate degrees include the Ph.D. in experimental psychology and the MS in developmental trauma. Students also have the option of pursuing a quantitative minor in psychology as part of their advanced degree. Students who complete the program go on to postdoctoral positions with top researchers and productive careers in academia, research, and the private sector.

The department has affiliations with the world-renowned Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development (KPICD), and the Institute of Behavioral Research (IBR), focused on tackling drug abuse and related public health issues. Faculty in the department are internationally recognized and active members of their respective scientific communities. Their research is frequently funded through government and private agencies.
