FACT: The Department of Psychological Science is home to one of the largest and most successful Ph.D. programs at UVM and generates about half of all research grant dollars in the College of Arts and Sciences.

Psychological Science majors:

  • take foundational and advanced courses in clinical, developmental, and social psychology as well as behavioral neuroscience.
  • gain valuable research experience working alongside faculty and doctoral students, unlike students at small colleges where faculty are not as research active. 
  • are taught by research-active faculty
  • engage in experience-based learning through faculty mentored research, faculty mentored community internships and faculty mentored teaching.
  • graduate ready for a career.  Our graduates pursue careers in business, law, public health, medicine, neuroscience, and human services.
  • often combine study in Psychological Science with minors in Social Work, Human Development, Neuroscience and Pharmacology.
