Our department has six areas of concentration: biological, clinical, cognitive and cognitive neuroscience, developmental, perception, and social and personality. Although there is a good deal of collaboration and interaction across groups, each area of concentration has its own requirements for graduate study and students are typically admitted into one of these areas of concentration. Please see the Individual Research Laboratories
page for more specific information about faculty and their individual research programs within the department.
The department also offers an Individualized Graduate Major (IGM)
option for students whoses interests cut across our departmental Area Groups and/or interface with other departments on campus.
