Overview

The Psychology program at Brandeis University examines the most up-to-date and comprehensive psychological research and theory and provides opportunities for direct involvement in its application to clinical, mental-health, business, educational, and other settings.

The programme

Our faculty conducts research in diverse areas including cognitive science, normal and abnormal development, health, culture, social interaction, spatial orientation, neurological bases of sensation, perception, memory, emotion, life-span development and aging, and effects of brain damage.

Psychology majors study varied aspects of both basic and applied areas of the field. The focus of the department is on basic scientific research, in which there is a high level of undergraduate involvement. Students have many exciting opportunities for working in faculty labs and for doing internships off campus.

A number of students write honors theses each year, while many more conduct independent studies, research, or reading projects, some of which are funded by undergraduate research program grants. The popular clinical psychology practicum enables students to spend at least one day per week working in a mental-health facility.
