The Department of Psychological Sciences pushes the boundaries of psychological knowledge and discovery through studying a wide range of topics, from the neural basis of behavior to interpersonal interactions and relationships. In addition to our graduate research training areas, faculty have particular strengths in research topics that stretch beyond any one training area.
