The Psychological and Brain Sciences department at Johns Hopkins University specifically supports interdisciplinary research in several core areas in biopsychology and cognitive and developmental psychology.
Each graduate student will identify an area in which to concentrate: biopsychology, developmental psychology, or cognitive psychology. The student will develop intensive knowledge and understanding of the area of concentration through advanced seminars, topical seminars, and research experience.
Our graduate students are trained in psychological science through general and advanced seminars in the various subdisciplines of psychology, and by active engagement in research. We do not offer a clinical training program. Rather, our department emphasizes training and experience in the research methods essential to the development of new knowledge in the various fields of psychology.
