Admissions Requirements

Please review admissions requirements and other information before applying. You can find degree program-specific admissions requirements below and access additional guidance on applying from the Department of Psychology .

Academic Background

While an undergraduate concentration in psychology is not required, some social science coursework is recommended. Because the program is heavily quantitatively oriented, college-level math and statistics are also advised. Research experience is extremely helpful; successful applicants have often worked for professors, done research projects as part of college courses, written an undergraduate thesis, or volunteered in a psychology research lab.

Please Note: Before making the decision to apply, the program in Psychology suggests checking individual faculty/lab websites or emailing faculty directly to inquire whether they plan to consider applicants for Fall 2024 admission. It’s important to note that while individual faculty members may have every intention of bringing in a new student this year, we cannot guarantee that they will all be able to do so. The total number of offers of admission to be extended by the graduate program is based on applicant preparedness and fit, availability of university advising and support resources, and target class size. Some of these factors are not able to be determined until after the applicant pool has been finalized.

1. Before submitting an application , we strongly encourage applicants to contact faculty with whom they are interested in working to discuss their research interests and confirm that working with the faculty member would be a good fit. 

A full listing of our graduate group members may be found here . All members of our graduate group are eligible to advise students in our program, but only those listed above have indicated that they will look at applications for Fall 2024.

2. Once you have contacted a faculty member and determined that the lab and the program are a good fit, you should proceed with your application ( APPLY HERE ).

3. The GRE General test is optional for application to Penn Psychology’s graduate program. We believe that the results of the test can provide valuable information in a student’s dossier--information that is different from the other elements and might allow a student to reveal intellectual distinction that would set them apart. At the same time, we are aware that the GRE is expensive and can present a barrier to application to PhD programs. It is in the interest of removing this barrier that we have made the GRE optional. If you do choose to submit GRE scores, they must be sent before the Dec. 1, 2023 admissions deadline. Please be aware that ETS (who makes the GRE) has a fee reduction program that halves the cost of the GRE for students who may not have the means to pay for the test: https://www.ets.org/gre/revised_general/register/fees/reductions/

4. Applicants whose native language is not English must prove English proficiency through the following approved tests, unless they graduated from an English-speaking university (i.e., a university in an English-speaking country): TOEFL iBT Test (standard/in-person), TOEFL iBT Special Home Edition, TOEFL ITP Plus for China solution, or IELTS. TOEFL must be submitted electronically through ETS using the institution code 2926. An official copy of the IELTS scores must be mailed directly from IELTS to the Graduate Division, School of Arts and Sciences, University of Pennsylvania, 3401 Walnut Street, Suite 322A, Philadelphia, PA 19104-6228.

5. Personal Statement: All applicants must include a personal statement that addresses the following question:   Please describe how your background and academic experiences have influenced your decision to pursue a graduate degree and led you to apply to Penn. Your essay should detail your specific research interests and intellectual goals within  your chosen field. Please provide information about your educational trajectory, intellectual curiosity and academic ambitions. If you have overcome adversity and/or experienced limited access to resources or opportunities in your field of study, please feel free to share how that has affected the course of your education. We are interested in your lived experiences and how your particular perspective might contribute to the inclusive and dynamic learning community that Penn values and strives to create.   For more information about the personal statement, please visit our Personal Statement Information page.

6. You must arrange to have 3 letters of recommendation sent to Penn and submit all components of the application before the December 1, 2023 deadline ( APPLY HERE ). These include a personal statement, a transcript, and a CV. See here , for additional information about the personal statement.

7. Pay your application fee. Penn offers application fee waivers for some applicants. All fee waiver requests for hardships, McNair Scholars, etc., should be sent to the Graduate Division of Arts and Sciences for their review. Requests may be sent by email to [email protected] . Please note that application fee waivers are not provided for international applicants.

Graduate Program in Psychology

Introduction.

The Graduate Field of Psychology includes faculty members from departments across the university including Psychology, Neurobiology and Behavior, Communication, and Philosophy.  M.A. and Ph.D. candidates are admitted. The goal of the Field is to educate students to become researchers, scholars, and teachers who will contribute to the future of psychology as a scientific discipline in academic or other research-oriented settings.

Psychology PhD Program Handbook : download PDF file

Currently: The dominant strengths of the Field lie in three broadly defined areas:  Behavioral and Evolutionary Neuroscience ;  Perception, Cognition and Development ; and  Social/Personality Psychology .

Future Plans: The dominant strengths of the Field lie in four broadly defined areas: Cognition , Development ,  Neuroscience , and Social and Personality . (The future areas will only strengthen our current program). 

Fall 2022 -2023 application cycle for the Fall 2023 - 2024 academic year, will be administered under the current program which will be grandfathered into future plans.

We do not offer training in clinical psychology, counseling, school psychology, community psychology, industrial psychology, or clinical neuropsychology. Applicants with primary interests in these subjects are not admitted.

The closing date for applications was December 15, 2023. For any questions or concerns please email our Graduate Field Representative at  [email protected] .

The Field Structure

At Cornell, graduate study is organized using a field structure.   Fields are composed of faculty members from a number of departments who come together around a shared intellectual interest, and may draw from different campuses or colleges.  Graduate students are admitted to fields of study.  Within each field, they select major and minor subjects, which are research interests or concentrations.

Fields span departments and even disciplines.  It’s possible for a student in the field of economics to include faculty on his or special committee from industrial labor and economics, civil and environmental engineering, and sociology along with the more traditional economics and management.

For example, the Graduate Field of Psychology includes faculty from

  • neurobiology and behavior (College of Agriculture & Life Sciences and College of Arts & Sciences)
  • industrial and labor relations (School of Industrial and Labor Relations)
  • nutritional science (College of Human Ecology)

Student Life

PhD Program

psychology phd admission

The PhD is conferred upon candidates who have demonstrated substantial scholarship and the ability to conduct independent research and analysis in Psychology.

A student typically concentrates in one of several areas within Psychology. Across all areas, the training program emphasizes the development of research competence, and students are encouraged to develop skills and attitudes that are appropriate to a career of continuing research productivity.

Two kinds of experience are necessary for this purpose. One is the learning of substantial amounts of theoretical, empirical, computational and methods information . A number of courses and seminars are provided to assist in this learning, and students are expected to construct a program in consultation with their advisor(s) to obtain this knowledge in the most stimulating and economical fashion.

A second aspect of training is one that cannot be gained from the courses or seminars. This is first-hand knowledge of, and practical experience with, the methods of psychological investigation and study . Therefore, students are expected to spend half of their time on research and to take no more than 10 units of course work per quarter, beginning in the first quarter.

Students achieve competence in unique ways and at different rates. Students and advisors work together to plan a program to accomplish these objectives.

If current students have any questions about the PhD program, please email the Student Services Manager, Dena Zlatunich, at  denamz [at] stanford.edu (denamz[at]stanford[dot]edu) . The current Director of Graduate Studies is Professor Hyo Gwoen.

If you are interested in applying for our PhD program, please carefully review the information on the  PhD Admissions website . Follow-up questions can be directed to the admissions staff at  psych-admissions [at] stanford.edu (psych-admissions[at]stanford[dot]edu) .

What kind of program does Harvard offer?

The Harvard Psychology Department offers a research-oriented Ph.D. program in four areas: Experimental Psychopathology & Clinical Science, Developmental, Social, and Cognition, Brain, and Behavior (CBB). The Department does not offer a terminal master’s degree in psychology, though students admitted to the Ph.D. program can earn a master’s along the way. Some graduates of the program seek positions as research psychologists in an academic setting. Other graduates get positions in government, consulting firms, tech startups or larger tech companies, hospitals or social service agencies, and other network or private clinical settings.  The Department offers two tracks, Clinical Science and a Common Curriculum. The common curriculum is composed of three sub-fields: Social Psychology, Developmental Psychology, and Cognition, Brain, and Behavior (CBB). The Common Curriculum, described in the program section of the graduate program website ,   is taken by all students except those in Clinical Science. Though these area boundaries exist, collaboration is an important aspect of our academic community. As such, faculty and students collaborate within and across these area boundaries.

How do I get information about Harvard doctoral program admissions?

The Harvard Griffin GSAS Admissions website includes information about how to apply, required application materials, test score requirements, deadlines, and FAQs.  The application process is online .  This link connects you to the Psychology Program of Study page on the GSAS Admissions website. You can refer to our PRO-TiP page to find faculty answers to frequently asked questions.

Prospective applicants will want to read carefully about departmental faculty research interests   to decide whether this department is a good match. "Fit" of interests is an important criterion when the Department makes admissions decisions.

This list of theses and dissertations completed by current and previous students in the doctoral program may be useful in figuring out if this department would provide a good fit for your research goals.   

Do I need an undergraduate degree in Psychology to be eligible for the PhD program?

A psychology major is not required, but it is recommended that applicants take some basic psychology courses and obtain research experience. Admitted applicants have excellent grades, test scores, letters of recommendation, research experience and are a good match in terms of research interests with one or more members of the faculty, who serve as advisors.

Do I need to submit GRE scores, and how do I submit them?

*The submission of GRE scores is optional for Fall 2024 admission.*  GRE scores are valid for five years from the test date. If you have personal score reports available from tests taken within the last five years, you can upload them to your online application for consideration by the admissions committee. However, you will still need to ensure that  Educational Testing Service  (ETS) sends an official score report. Be sure to register for the tests well before administration dates and request that your scores be sent to Harvard University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences using code 3451 (department code is not required).

Does the Psychology Department offer a master's degree?

No, we do not offer a terminal master’s degree in psychology, though students admitted to the PhD program can earn a master’s along the way.   

How long does the program take?

Some students find four years is sufficient to complete the program, although most take five and a few take six years. Financial aid is generally offered for up to six years. 

Who may act as a PhD advisor?

Only tenure-track faculty members in the Department of Psychology may serve as primary advisors to PhD students in Psychology. Affiliated faculty cannot serve as primary mentors for PhD students. Students are welcome to form collaborations with affiliated faculty, but these individuals do not participate in our PhD program admissions.

Can I get training in clinical psychology at Harvard?

The Department offers a research-oriented program in Clinical Science. Our program was designed and is perhaps best suited for individuals who aspire toward careers in clinical scientific research and teaching. As compared with some more clinically oriented programs, we place relatively more emphasis on research training and experience in our program admissions and our training program for admitted graduate students. That said, the clinical training opportunities afforded by the program provide excellent training in clinical intervention and assessment as well. The Clinical Program is accredited by the American Psychological Association and by the Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System (PCSAS).

Is there a part-time or distance learning option?

This is a full-time, in-person program. In unusual circumstances, the Department may grant permission for an enrolled student to temporarily register for a part-time schedule. It is required that students be in residence for at least two years in the program, and almost all students are in residence for the entire program. It is possible to receive permission to be a "traveling scholar" and do research or writing away from Cambridge, but this is most typical for students at an advanced stage of the program who have finished data collection. There is no online or distance-learning program.

Can I apply if I already have a master's degree?

Yes. Students that have completed prior graduate work can petition, after a semester of satisfactory work in the Department, to receive credit for up to eight relevant half-courses, the equivalent of a year's worth of work. However, many students in the program don't bother to apply for this credit since it is rare for a student to be exempted from any courses required by the department. In addition, the bulk of time in the doctoral program is spent on research projects, and the department very rarely exempts students from these. Even students coming in with a master's degree take between 4-6 years to complete the program, though an incoming student with more education may naturally be more focused at an earlier point in their program. By the time a student has finished all requirements for the doctorate, including research requirements, they will have many more than the required minimum number of credits.

Is there financial aid available?

Funding is in the form of grants in the early years and teaching or research fellowships in later years. Typically all admitted students are offered a funding package consisting of up to six years of full tuition, three years of living stipend, and two years of guaranteed teaching fellowships (which would provide a similar level of living support). Additional teaching is usually available in the fifth year. Both international and U.S. applicants are eligible for this financial package. Because funds are limited, applicants are urged to apply for any outside fellowships they may be eligible for.  NSF graduate fellowships  and those from the  Department of Defense  are examples of national fellowship competitions open to U.S. citizens. There are also the  Ford Foundation Fellowships , available specifically for URM scholars.  Receiving an outside fellowship may allow you to have a higher stipend, to decrease your teaching commitment or to have an additional year to complete your degree. Receiving an outside fellowship is also a professional honor that will help you in applying for jobs after graduate school.

How can I maximize my chances of being admitted?

We use a holistic approach in evaluating applicants and admitting graduate students to the program. Among the factors considered are grades from undergraduate coursework, GRE scores, letters of recommendation, application essays, prior research experience, and focused research interests, with an emphasis on those that are compatible with those of faculty members. The department is also actively committing to building an inclusive field. Part of that commitment is prioritizing diversity and support for diverse individuals within our own department.

While we do not require an undergraduate concentration in psychology, some social science coursework is recommended. Because the program is heavily quantitatively oriented, college-level math and statistics are also advised. Research experience is extremely helpful: successful applicants have often worked for professors, done research projects as part of college courses, written an undergraduate thesis, or volunteered in a psychology research lab.

Candidates’ research interests and compatibility with the program are determined in large part by the candidate's application essay, the Statement of Purpose. Here is some advice from a professor for writing a good application essay:

Over the past 12 years, I have been reading graduate school admissions’ essays. These include essays from students applying to work with me as well as those from my own students who are preparing to apply to other graduate programs. When my own students apply to graduate school, I give them very specific advice about the nature of the essay, what I think most candidate schools and advisors are looking for. I have always had a particular view about what makes for a good read , of course from a personal perspective. I have been struck by the fact that many of the incoming essays lack the kind of content that I am looking for, having the appearance of an undergraduate application essay. This seems unfortunate because I often use the essay more than almost anything else to get a sense of the applicant’s intellectual potential and passion. Many students that apply have stellar GPAs and GREs, but only a few present carefully reasoned essays that really motivate the reasons for going to graduate school. In essence, essays that capture my attention are ones that develop ideas, propose experiments, point to holes in the literature, and do these things with passion and excitement. These very general comments, which will certainly not capture every advisor’s perspective, or even the majority, can be distilled to a few essential ingredients, presented below as questions:

  • Why continue on with your education? Why do you need to learn more? What skills, theories, and knowledge do you lack?
  • What are the kinds of discoveries and theories that sparked your interest in the chosen discipline?
  • In graduate school, what kinds of questions do you hope to address? Why do you think that these questions are important? Given the set of questions that you will focus on, what kinds of methods do you hope to apply? What skills do you bring forward as you enter graduate school and which skills do you hope to acquire?
  • What holes do you see in the current discipline [big picture stuff]? In what ways do you think that they can be addressed during your graduate career?
  • What kind of graduate environment are you looking for? Are you particularly keen on working with one faculty advisor, and if so, why this particular person? If you are leaning more toward a cluster of advisors, as well as the department more generally, why? Hint: faculty are engaged by students who have read some of their work, have thought critically about it, and wish to develop some of the issues addressed. Further, it helps with admissions to have one or more faculty championing your case.

Essays that have the above ingredients are truly informative. They tell each faculty member why the candidate wants to go to graduate school, what problems they hope to tackle, what skills they bring, and which skills they hope to acquire. Following this format is, of course, not a ticket of admission, but it will certainly make your application more interesting and informative.

More information from faculty in this program can be found on our PRO-TiP page .

Can I take courses without being admitted to the degree program?

The only way to take Harvard FAS courses, unless you are enrolled in another Harvard graduate program or MIT, is to be admitted as a  Special Student , which allows you to take between one and four courses a semester. Foreign national students  have  to take a full-time load in order to get a student visa. Students are issued a transcript, but no degree or certificate, for their work in the Special Student program.

Admitted Special Student applicants should be aware that the Department does not have the resources to provide the same support, academic and otherwise, to Special Students as it does to PhD students. Special Students are not assigned advisors, office space, research space, research funds, financial aid, library keys, or computer lab accounts. They are restricted from taking the Department's proseminar (PSY 2010), and other courses at the discretion of the instructor. 

Many Special Students hope eventually to enroll in a psychology graduate program; some plan to apply to Harvard's Ph.D. program. However, applicants should consider the Special Student year an opportunity to take courses, rather than a way to get an early start on the PhD program. While Special Students are certainly eligible to apply, potential applicants should be aware that admission as a Special Student does not guarantee admission to the PhD program. Special Students who are later admitted to the doctoral program receive credit for appropriate graduate-level courses taken during the Special Student term(s).

  • The Graduate School accepts online applications only.
  • The fee (subject to change) is $95 for both domestic and international applicants, payable by credit card.
  • Eligible applicants have the option to request a waiver using an online form that appears as part of the online application submission process.
  • Copies of unofficial transcripts from each post-secondary institution attended documenting all courses taken, whether or not within a degree program, grades received and degrees earned are to be uploaded to the on-line application.  Only applicants recommended for admission that decide to enroll are required to submit official transcripts as part of the enrollment process.
  • Two to three letters of recommendation submitted online. The Graduate School has a specific recommendation form as part of the online application and no mailed recommendation letters will be accepted. All letters of recommendation must be submitted through the online application.
  • Academic Statement -Write a statement that answers the following questions (1,000 words max):   What are your academic interests, and why do you wish to pursue graduate studies in this specific program? How has your academic and professional background prepared you for graduate study? (Please include any research, training, or educational experiences that align with the program you are applying to.) How will our program help you achieve your intellectual and professional goals? For research-focused programs, please make sure to address any scholarly questions you wish to explore in the program and name any specific faculty members in this program whose research interests align with your own.  
  • Personal Statement - Write a statement that addresses the following prompt (500 words max): The Graduate School values diverse backgrounds, approaches, and perspectives, understanding them as essential ingredients for true academic excellence. As a Northwestern graduate student, how could you contribute to an intellectual community that prioritizes equity, inclusion, belonging, and cultural humility? Your answer may draw upon past or present experiences, whether in academic work, extracurricular or community activities, or everyday life.
  • Scan and upload a copy of your GRE scores and, for international applicants whose native language is not English, unofficial scores for either the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), MET or IELTS exam. Official results must be sent directly to Northwestern by the Educational Testing Service. 

NOTE: Materials submitted in support of an application are not released for other purposes and cannot be returned to the applicant.

Online Application

The application form can be completed and submitted electronically to Northwestern once you have answered all the questions. You may require several sessions to complete this form. That is understandable and is allowed through our on-line application system.

Supplementary materials should be sent together by you to Northwestern in a single large Supplemental Information Packet well before the deadline. To ensure the full consideration of your application be sure to carefully follow the submission procedure detailed in the on-line application.

All applicants are required to pay an application fee. Applicants using the on-line application may pay the fee by credit card.

Your application will NOT be processed without payment of the fee. The fee cannot be waived or postponed, is not refundable and must accompany the supplementary materials.

Transcripts

Copies of unofficial transcripts from each post-secondary institution attended, including records from courses in any university-level institution attended abroad must be uploaded to the on-line application. This means that students working toward a master's degree at another institution should upload unofficial transcripts of all undergraduate work as well as unofficial transcripts of all graduate work completed at the time of submitting the on-line application. The transcripts should show all the courses you took, whether or not within a degree program, the grades received, and the degrees earned.

This information may be included on the final transcript or on the diploma. Final credentials must be submitted as soon as they become available. Registration may be delayed pending the receipt of official documents showing that the degree has been awarded and/or that all academic work undertaken before enrollment in The Graduate School has been completed in good standing and with acceptable grades.

Note to International Applicants

The academic records we refer to as transcripts should provide a listing, year-by-year, of all courses taken and the grade or marks received for each one. It is helpful to have the grading scale of the institution and the student's rank in class included when such information is available. Do not submit secondary school records. The Graduate School and the Department of Psychology have no use for them, and such transcripts will be discarded.

If your college or university will not mail original official academic documents to you, you may send exact copies that have been verified as "Certified True Copies" by the appropriate institutional official of each institution you have attended. Uncertified photocopies are not acceptable.

To be considered, all documents not in English must be accompanied by official English translations. These translations must bear an original ink signature and seal. Translations alone will not be accepted.

Letters of Recommendation

The Graduate School requires a minimum of two letters of recommendation from persons best able to assess your ability to do scholarly research required by graduate studies. All letters of recommendation must be submitted through the online application.

Academic & Personal Statements

Your statements  are an important part of your application. Program admissions committees consider them carefully in ranking applicants. Be as specific as possible about your research interests and qualifications. If you have particular reasons for choosing Northwestern, be sure to indicate them. Indicate any awards or honors you may have earned, publications you may have authored, or any pertinent research or work experience. 

The Academic & Personal Statements should be uploaded into the online application prior to submission.

Certifying English Proficiency

Much of your success in graduate study will rely on your ability to understand, read, write and speak English. If your native language is not English, you must certify your proficiency in the English language in one of the following three ways:

  • Providing official scores for either the TOEFL, Michigan English Test or IELTS exam. Please see the TGS website for more information English Language proficiency tests. 
  • Providing official transcripts verifying an undergraduate degree from an accredited four-year institution or equivalent, where the language of instruction is English.
  • Providing official transcripts verifying a graduate degree from an accredited institution where the language of instruction is English.

Scores must be no older than two years from intended quarter of entry. For example, to be considered valid for Fall 2024 admission, TOEFL scores must be no older than September 1, 2022. Personal copies are not considered official, nor are "attested" or notarized copies. However, it is to your advantage to include a paper copy of your score report in your Supplemental Information Packet. This helps us verify your scores quickly, should there be any delay in receiving the official report.

For more information about The Graduate School's English Proficiency requirement, click here .  The Graduate School's school code for TOEFL is 1565. Those taking the paper-based exam should select department code 01. When prompted, IBT test takers should request that their scores be sent to the graduate office and then select the program name that most closely matches their program of interest. If no match is available, the test taker may choose option 99.

Test of Spoken English (TSE)

International students wishing to be considered for appointment as a Teaching Assistant during any year of study in The Graduate School will also need to submit an official Test of Spoken English (TSE) with a score of 50 or higher.

To ensure that we have adequate time to assemble all items submitted on your behalf, you should submit the application and all supporting documents by 5pm CST on December 1st. As a general rule, the earlier you get your materials to the Northwestern, the better your chances for full consideration.  However, applications received more than one calendar year before the anticipated date of matriculation will be returned to the sender.  Please note that Northwestern does not accept responsibility for postal or courier service delays in receiving items sent by mail.

Additional Information for International Applicants: Visas

All application requirements discussed throughout this web site pertain to both US and international students. Items of special relevance to foreign applicants are given throughout. However, the following information, regarding visas, is applicable only to you.

In order to study in the United States, international students must obtain the appropriate visa. Students attending Northwestern University will receive one of the following types of visas.

  • F-1 Student Visa, with an I-20 Certificate of Eligibility issued by Northwestern University.
  • J-1 Exchange-Visitor (Student) Visa, with an IAP-66 Certificate of Eligibility issued by Northwestern University (or a sponsoring agency).

Before Northwestern can issue the I-20 or IAP-66, US immigration law requires that the university must have documented evidence that a student has adequate financial resources to cover the expenses of studying here. (Additional funds must be verified if a student plans to bring a spouse or children.) Northwestern asks for this information on the Request for Visa form, on the reverse side of the confirmation of intention to register form, which is sent to all admitted students in their admissions packets.

If you are being awarded any financial aid from Northwestern, we will use these figures, combined with the information you supply, in submitting your request for visa to the International Office here at Northwestern. Please note, however, that each student must assume responsibility for the amount needed beyond what Northwestern may award.

The I-20 or the IAP-66 is issued only after a student has submitted official TOEFL scores (when applicable), been offered admission, has returned the Confirmation of Intention to Register form and has provided verification of the necessary funds.

PhD Graduate Education at Northeastern University logo

The Department of Psychology offers a research-intensive PhD program within a close-knit community of faculty and students.

The Department of Psychology offers a graduate program leading to a PhD in psychology. The program offers four main specializations, behavioral neuroscience, cognition, perception, and personality/social, with cross-cutting themes in affective science, lifespan development, and health. The main objective of the program is to train a select group of students to become experts in the multidisciplinary field of psychological science. To accomplish this goal, the department takes a mentoring approach whereby the graduate students are apprentices in faculty laboratories, working closely with their faculty mentors throughout their time in the program. All students are fully supported with stipend and tuition waiver, 12 months a year, for their full five years in the program.

The department admits a small group of students to its doctoral program each year in order to maintain its apprenticeship model, with students admitted to work with a particular faculty mentor. In the laboratory, responsibility for collaboration in research gradually shifts from the faculty mentor to the student, culminating in the student’s doctoral dissertation. The program is five years in length, with students earning a Master’s degree at the end of their second year, in the course of working towards their PhD. Some students enter with a Master’s degree in an appropriate field; they are not required to earn another one.

The basic apprenticeship relation is supplemented by other activities, such as required courses (concentrated in the first and second years), advanced seminars and/or coursework in this as well as other departments or universities, a colloquium series, assignments as teaching assistants, the master’s project, and the dissertation and its oral defense. Graduate students also develop their teaching and research skills through close mentoring of undergraduate research assistants.

  • Specializations in behavioral neuroscience, cognition, perception, and personality/social
  • Cross-cutting themes in affective science, lifespan development, and health
  • Program follows apprenticeship model, with students admitted to work with a particular faculty mentor
  • Students without a Master’s degree in an appropriate field will earn one at the end of their second year
  • Students develop teaching and research skills through mentoring of undergraduate research assistants
  • All students are fully supported with stipend and tuition waiver, 12 months a year, for their full five years in the program
  • Bachelor’s and Advanced-degree entry are possible

Clinical Psychology Ph.D. - Admissions

Application timeline:.

December 2, 2024: Application deadline; entrance for 2025 Fall Semester only December 20, 2024: Final date by which applicants will be invited to interview January 27, 2025: Interviews of Finalists conducted by admissions committee (remotely) February 27-28, 2025: Optional Open House (by invitation): Select applicants are welcomed to BYU campus for tours and interactions with faculty and students. Admission decisions will not be contingent upon attendance. January-April: Applicants will be notified of their status

How Applications are Evaluated:

The clinical psychology program's graduate admissions committee consists of four faculty members and one graduate student. Each member of the admissions committee reviews the completed applications using a holistic evaluation approach which integrates both quantitative and qualitative information. No application is flawless and strong performance in one area may compensate for less outstanding performance in another. However, research experience is highly valued and applicants are unlikely to be competitive for admission without at least one year of research involvement . We also value "goodness of fit" between the applicant's expressed interests and the strengths and offerings of our program as well as applicant fit with a potential faculty mentor. We follow a mentorship match model of admission, meaning that we evaluate how well your interests align with one (or perhaps two) of our current clinical psychology faculty. After the admission committee has reviewed your application, we consult with the potential faculty mentor whom you designate to determine whether they believe you are a good fit for their research lab. Then the committee meets to determine which applicants will be invited to interview. A similar process happens after virtual interviews are complete after which decisions regarding whom to recommend to Graduate Studies for admission are made. In recent years, we have admitted 7-8 students per year. As quickly as possible following the December 1 application deadline, the admissions committee begins notifying applicants of their status. We will inform you if you are being invited for a virtual interview or if you are no longer under consideration for admission. Although those applicants who are offered admission have until April 15 to either accept or reject our offer, applicants are strongly encouraged to notify us of their decision as soon as possible and, in fairness to other applicants, to "hold onto" no more than two offers of admission at any one time.

Please note that offers for admission follow the policies of the Council of Graduate Department of Psychology (COGDOP) and the Council of University Directors of Clinical Psychology (CUDCP). Here is a summary of the CUDCP policy. Please note, too, that a background check will be required after the start of the program before a student is permitted to see clients.

Prerequisites:

Bachelor's Degree from an accredited college or university

Minimum GPA of 3.0; 3.5 to be competitive; median GPA 3.89, range 3.05-4.00. Psychology degree preferred but not required.*

Prerequisite undergraduate courses

General Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, Psychological Statistics, Research Design. Deficiencies can be completed after admission to the program and prior to the beginning of Fall Semester.

*Our program is open to accepting well-qualified students whose undergraduate degrees are not in psychology. To qualify for admission, these individuals must either (1) have completed a minimum of 15 credits of study in psychology, including general/introductory psychology, abnormal psychology/psychopathology, statistics, and research methods or (2) have completed the GRE Psychology Subject Test and reported their scores to BYU prior to the application deadline.

GRE is optional; scores will be considered if submitted.

English Proficiency for International Applicants (International Applicants only) See Graduate Studies website for detailed information and minimum standards of English Proficiency .

E3PT : English3 Proficiency Test TOEFL: Test of English as a Foreign Language IELTS : International English Language Testing System CAE : Cambridge Assessment English (C1, 2)

Equal Opportunity and Minority Recruitment:

The University and Program are committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. Admissions policies include equal opportunity (see the Equal Opportunity Office for more information) and special encouragement for applicants from minority and other underrepresented groups. We keep our academic admission requirements flexible to accommodate the recognition of diversity, disability, and other particular needs.

Professor Walter Venerable III Sweeps Undergraduate Teaching Awards

Walter Venerable III Head Shot

Walter Venerable III has achieved an impressive feat by winning the Award of Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching for Graduate Teaching Assistants at the department, college, and university levels. His innovative technique, dubbed "edutainment," has bridged the generational gap between students and teachers while revolutionizing the traditional classroom experience.

Professor Venerable employs a unique approach, infusing his lessons with humor and cultural references to engage students. Describing it as "dad-level cringe," he uses humor to create a comfortable environment for students to participate actively in discussions. By incorporating elements from TikTok trends and memes, he ensures that his teaching remains relevant and relatable to today's youth.

However, Professor Venerable's classes are not all about jokes and entertainment. At the core of his teaching philosophy is the belief that effective communication is paramount in all aspects of life, whether in academia, healthcare settings, or everyday interactions. He emphasizes the importance of connecting with others and encourages students to take small, meaningful actions to make a positive impact in their communities.

In essence, Professor Venerable's teaching method goes beyond the conventional boundaries of education. By combining humor with profound insights, he empowers students to become effective communicators and agents of change. Congratulations to Professor Venerable for his well-deserved recognition, and thank you for sharing your inspiring approach with our community.
