Department of Psychology Interview Weekend is February 21-23, 2014. The individual programs have different policies about whether in-person or telephone interviews are recommended or required. Please contact program directors or watch the web site for specific details. Interviews are by invitation only, following review of the applications. We typically extend invitations to attend Interview Weekend about one month prior to the weekend.
We offer programs in graduate study that:
- emphasize the development of research and teaching excellence
- establish collegial partnerships between students and faculty
- develop cross-fertilization of ideas between specializations in the context of a rigorous, but flexible, training program
Program areas are small enough to offer individual attention to each graduate student yet large enough to provide a broadly-based foundation for research and scholarship.
Graduate students quickly become involved in the department's diverse research activities, teaching opportunities, applied practica and internships, and governance processes.
