Whether you’re an undergraduate who wants to develop skills that can be useful in almost any career, or a graduate student committed to researching the neuroscience of addiction, you will find peers and faculty that are passionate about developing a scientific understanding of why people think and behave the way they do.

We offer two undergraduate degrees, as well as a master’s in industrial/organizational psychology. Our three doctoral degree programs are highly competitive.
