Graduate Programs

Driving simulator. The mission of the psychology graduate programs is to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and intellectual habits required for successful careers in research, teaching, and professional service. We offer three doctoral programs (a terminal master's degree is not offered):

  • Behavioral Neuroscience: prepares students for independent research and teaching in the neurobiology of behavior.
  • Lifespan Developmental Psychology: trains scientists to conduct research to discover and apply basic principles of developmental psychology in an interdisciplinary context and to apply those principles to a variety of problems.
  • Medical/Clinical Psychology (jointly sponsored by the UAB School of Medicine): prepares students to become leaders in research and clinical care in the areas of behavioral, mental, and physical health promotion, disease prevention, risk reduction, and symptom assessment and amelioration in interdisciplinary and medical settings.

Admission to the Psychology graduate programs is highly selective. All of our graduate students study core substantive areas of psychological science as well as more specific areas in their specialization. Under the supervision of qualified faculty, and as appropriate for their specialization and career goals, our graduate students also:

  • conduct research,
  • publish in highly respected journals,
  • seek and receive extramural grant funding,
  • participate in national and international conferences,
  • actively participate in scientific and professional organizations,
  • teach, and
  • provide professional service
