The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences is located in Room 334 Tolentine Hall. The general office number is 610.519.4720. (Directions to campus).
Our programs provide students with a solid foundation for pursuing further study or employment in basic psychological science or in applied areas such as clinical or counseling psychology. The undergraduate program is also attractive to students who want a clearer understanding of human behavior as part of a liberal arts and sciences education.
For graduate students, there are a limited number of university funded assistantships and tuition scholarships (TS) are awarded on a competitive basis. These include research/teaching assistantships which carry a remission of tuition and fees and in some instances a monthly stipend. Students with assistantships and tuition scholarships are assigned to faculty members to help with their teaching and/or research efforts. Depending on the type of award, assistants and tuition scholars are expected to work from 7-20 hours per week for their faculty mentor. Additional research assistantships, supported by extramural grants, are awarded by faculty members holding the grants.
Most faculty members in our department maintain active research labs in their field of specialization. For more information, visit the Research Labs page
