Behavioral and Brain Sciences Program
The educational goal of the doctoral program in Behavioral and Brain Sciences (BBS) is to prepare students for a successful career as a scholar in an academic or other professional setting. Although all students are expected to master at least a portion of the core areas in their respective concentrations, and meet the Masters Core requirements of the Department of Psychology, students are encouraged to devise, with the advice and consent of their Advisory Committee, a program of studies best suited to their particular needs and aspirations. In addition to general knowledge and skills that are expected for all graduate students in Psychology, specific programs of study are expected to foster advanced expertise in a specialty area.
