Department of Psychology
The General/Experimental Program
Close Faculty/Student Mentoring
Academic Program and Research Plans
Students are expected to take responsibility for developing a research plan and a studies program to meet their individual needs during their first year of study. The advisor reviews the student's academic training and background, assists the student in developing her or his academic program, and determines whether there are general areas of psychology in which the student lacks exposure. Students then take courses in any such areas as part of their early graduate training.
The General/Experimental Program receives overt 50 applications each year and admits about five to six of those students. Of the students who have enrolled in our program, approximately 90 percent have stayed and completed their Ph.D. here.
Faculty/Student Mentor Relationship
When you apply, you must specify the names of one or two faculty members you wish to do research with, since particular attention is paid to the match between a student's interests and the plans and the expertise of our Department.
