Intellectual and Research Communities
The Psychology Department has approximately 30 full time faculty members. This size allows the department to function “as a whole” rather than as a set of insulated areas. Thus there are no rigid boundaries between biological, cognitive, developmental, personality, and clinical psychology. Although students admitted into the clinical psychology training program do have specialized requirements for the Ph.D. degree, they are free to pursue research topics with clinical or non-clinical faculty. In the sections below we describe some of the research foci using the more traditional and long-standing research communities of clinical, cognitive, development, social, personality, and neuroscience.
Numerous additional intellectual communities draw students and faculty together in a collaborative way – including, for example, current intellectual communities focusing on decision making, affective cognitive neuroscience, traumatic stress, individual differences, psycholinguistics, and community psychology.
