Graduate training in Washington University's Department of Psychology is organized into four areas of specialization:
-Aging and Development
-Behavior, Brain, & Cognition
-Social and Personality Psychology
Although you declare your interest in one of these areas when applying to the graduate program, you are exposed to all areas through your courses, research collaboration, and departmental colloquia. Requirements for course-work are structured to give you a broad exposure to the major areas of psychology as well as basic training in statistics and research methods. Individual programs have additional emphases that reflect their training goals.
