Research in Psychology
Although we offer 3 different Ph.D. programs, we have a large number of faculty with research interests that cut across programs. This makes for a very collaborative and exciting research environment. Our faculty are actively engaged in research projects exploring topics in diversity and organizational leadership, health psychology, aging, psychopathology, neuroscience, and cognition, just to name a few.
