Nature and Goals of the program

Image Picker for Section 0

This apprenticeship program is designed to rapidly engage new students in research. Students begin conducting research their first semester. The number of required courses/seminars is minimal allowing the student in consultation with his/her advisor to select whatever additional courses would be most valuable to that student’s research interests. For breadth in the field, our students attend a weekly Cognitive Brown Bag at which faculty and graduate students present their research and discuss current topics in the field. Throughout the year students can choose among a number of colloquia offered by the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences​ and the College-wide Cognitive Science Program. In addition, during their first two years, students’ readings are drawn from a variety of areas (courses, brown bag, independent reading) that will help them​ to prepare for the Qualifying exam. ​

Please note that detailed information about general UD Ph.D. requirements and milestones are available on the UD Graduate and Professional Education Website.​
