Cognitive / Experimental Psychology

Program Description:

The Cognitive/Experimental Program is designed to provide students with a mastery of the substantive knowledge and methodological skills necessary for a successful career as a teacher or researcher in academic or other professional settings. Although all students master the core areas of Cognitive Psychology and meet the Masters core requirements of the Department of Psychology, students are encouraged to devise, with their Advisory Committee, a program of study best suited to their particular needs and aspirations. In addition to general knowledge and skills that are expected in all Cognitive/Experimental graduate programs, the program of study is expected to foster advanced expertise in at least one of the following sub-disciplines: cognition and information processing, sensation and perception, and cognitive neuroscience.
