Our faculty are internationally known scholars, who hold editorial positions at major Psychology journals, are members of grant panels at the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, and have been awarded substantial research grants. You'll have opportunities to work alongside them in research labs and on teams that present at national conferences and publish in leading journals.
