The Carnegie Mellon University Psychology program at the Carnegie Mellon University is distinguished, in part, by a focus on both critical consumption and generation of research ideas and acquisition of research skills. This includes observing behavior, formulating hypotheses, designing experiments to test these hypotheses, running experiments, performing statistical analyses, and writing reports 


Key facts:

  • Psychology is a science that embraces both biological and social sciences. It is a science concerned with establishing principles and laws regarding the ways in which people think and behave. Some of the sub-fields within psychology that are taught at Carnegie Mellon University include cognitive, social, personality, developmental, educational, clinical, physiological, and health. In all of these areas knowledge is established through the scientific study of human behavior.
  • The department at the Carnegie Mellon University  has many resources for students to use in acquiring these skills. For instance, students interested in child development may be involved in the child development laboratory and observational facilities which are a part of the Carnegie Mellon Children's School.
  • The department has a set of state of the art undergraduate research laboratories. In addition to formal class work, students are encouraged to participate in research projects and fieldwork via a number of opportunities available to them. They may register for Readings in Psychology, Research in Psychology, or an Internship in Clinical Psychology. In the Research course, the student may work on an ongoing research project or develop and carry out a new research project with a faculty member.
