The Biopsychology program is designed to give graduate students a broad experience with techniques and issues in several areas of the discipline. As a student in our program, you will receive some of your training through traditional classroom instruction and small seminars, but the major focus of the program is active learning through close collaboration with faculty. You will be expected to choose a faculty member whose research interests are compatible with your own — developing a mentoring relationship with that faculty member to guide and train you during your graduate career.
How to Apply
The Biopsychology program will not be admitting students for 2015-16 as it is being merged with the Health PhD program . However, Dr. Joseph Porter and Dr. Thomas Eissenberg may be admitting students into the Health PhD program. So please check with individual faculty and check out the Health PhD program information.
For additional questions, please contact Dr. Joseph Porter, director of the Biopsychology Division.
