Faculty Research

All tenure-track faculty in the Department of Psychology have active research programs and regularly publish and present at professional meetings. They frequently engage graduate students as co-authors on articles published in peer-reviewed journals and as co-presenters for scientific meeting presentations. Many faculty members also conduct research projects supported by grant funding, and are consistently publishing new books.
