GRADUATE PROGRAM

Individualized Graduate Major

Although most of our incoming graduate students' interests fall within the five existing Area Groups of Psychology in the department (Biological, Clinical, Cognitive and Cognitive Neurosciences, Developmental, and Social/Personality), some do not. That some students' interests cut across our departmental Area Groups and/or interface with other departments on campus is to be expected in a top-notch department because the boundaries of Psychology itself are in flux. The Individualized Graduate Major is designed for those graduate students who do not find a niche in our current area group structure and, instead, wish to cross traditional Area Group lines and/or incorporate substantial training from other departments in their Psychology graduate work. It is important to emphasize that the Individualized Graduate Major leads to a Psychology Ph.D. and is not appropriate for students whose graduate study does not emphasize Psychological Science. Such students are advised to pursue a Ph.D. in another department or a Committee degree.
