Biological Psychology

The Biological Psychology Program is not accepting new students at this time.

The training provided in the Biological Psychology Area emphasizes both course work and research on humans. This training is intended to qualify students for positions in the rapidly expanding field of behavioral neuroscience in either the academic or private sector. This curriculum is flexible enough to allow students to tailor a program appropriate to their particular interests.

In addition to formal instruction in Psychology, students receive training in other complementary disciplines. This provides an appreciation for the interdisciplinary nature of behavioral neuroscience and the specialized skills and knowledge more appropriately taught by other departments in the University.
