Academic Program

The Stony Brook University Department of Psychology was founded in 1960 and is one of Stony Brook's largest and strongest departments, having awarded more than 800 Ph.D. degrees since its inception.

The Department offers training in Integrative Neuroscience, Clinical Psychology, Cognitive Science, and Social & Health Psychology. One of our great strengths is our high degree of collaboration that transcends traditional    academic boundaries and the numerous cross-cutting themes of study available as part of our graduate training. 


In the new 2016 rankings by US News and World Report, the Clinical Psychology graduate program was ranked fourth in the country.

Congratulations to Ph.D. students Tenille Taggart and Sierra Kuzava who have just been awarded National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships.  Awardees -- chosen from close to 17,000 applicants -- represent a diverse group of scientific disciplines and from all states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. commonwealths and territories.

Congratulations to Kristin Bernard, Nicholas Eaton, Matthew Lerner and Brady Nelson, APS 2015 Rising Stars.
