Quantitative Psychology emphasizes the interface between quantitative methods and psychological issues. Graduates will be trained as quantitative specialists, with a substantial background in psychology. Students will complete a minor in either another area of psychology (Cognition and Brain Science, Cognitive Aging, Engineering Psychology and Industrial/Organizational Psychology) or in another discipline. Relevant disciplines outside psychology include computer science, industrial systems and engineering, bioinformatics, mathematics, and statistics. The exact focus of the student’s studies depends on the current interests of the faculty and the student. Current faculty interests and course offerings include psychometric methods, item response theory, structural equation modeling, multivariate statistics, factor analysis and multilevel modeling as well as many other topics in psychological methods and statistics.
