Areas of specialization include biopsychology and behavioral
neuroscience, clinical psychology (APA approved), cognitive psychology,
social psychology, intradisciplinary developmental psychology, and
intradisciplinary health psychology.
Part-time students are
not accepted into the program. New graduate students must have had an
undergraduate course in experimental psychology with laboratory and a
course in statistics. There is no language requirement.
Specific course requirements and options normally are established by
each area. To the greatest extent possible, students' programs are
tailored to their career goals. A minimum of 48 course credits and 24
research credits are required in the Ph.D. program.
addition to the Ph.D. program in clinical psychology, a doctor of
psychology (Psy.D.) degree in clinical or school psychology is offered
by the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology. This
program is described in that graduate school's catalog.
