In the course of studying for and completing a PhD in the field of Psychology,students will work toward mastering a broad understanding of causes of behavior, with a particular emphasis within at least one of our three areas of study: Social and Personality, Perception, Cognition and Development, and Behavioral and Evolutionary Neuroscience. The Psychology program is offered by Cornell University.



  • Our faculty members have interests that go from influences on behavior in a social context, to neural mechanisms of learning, to evolution of brain capacities for particular behaviors. 
  • The major goals of our graduate program are for our students to appreciate the questions and approaches of those in the department outside their specific interests, and for them to become experts in their own chosen domain.
  •  We provide a variety of means for students to achieve these goals, from area and department research discussion and speakers, to repeated required presentations on their own research.
The Psychology program is offered by Cornell University.
