During the first two years, students participate in a program of foundation courses designed to provide broad coverage of theoretical and empirical issues in psychology.
Beyond the foundation program, students’ course requirements are prescribed by their curricular area. Students participate in advanced courses and seminars, covering topics particular to their area of specialization and interests. All students are expected to gain research experience under the supervision of a faculty member and are encouraged to continue their research in one or more laboratories throughout their graduate careers. Throughout the year, students also attend colloquia presented by faculty and visiting scholars.
