The Social Psychology Program operates on an apprenticeship model by which students work closely with a faculty member on theory-driven research. This model, though, strongly encourages students to work with more than one faculty member during their training. Active research experience leading to published research is a key element of our program. Depending on a student's interests, the majority of research may be conducted in laboratory settings or in such applied settings as schools or community centers. We are a highly interdisciplinary program, utilizing methods from multiple domains to study questions of societal import, and our overarching goal is to provide graduate students with the means to examine issues of interest with a similar approach.
