    students in research teaching and scholarship in the areas of behavioral neuroscience perception cognition and social personality psychology This graduate program does not offer training in clinical psychology school counseling or industrial psychology If you are interested in any of these programs please refer to the Teacher s College web site for further information Historically the research programs in the Department were on the intersections of the social cognitive and biological areas This is still true today It produces high levels of interaction among students and faculty across areas while serving to broaden students knowledge of the content and methodologies of the science of psychology Students start their own research beginning in their first year and are encouraged to do innovative and original work throughout their graduate career As there are few course requirements graduate students have the opportunity to fully invest themselves in their research and in their instructional training They also regularly attend area research seminars and colloquia Within a community of dedicated faculty students explore and tailor their interests in consultation with appropriate faculty advisors creating their own learning environments There are usually between 30 and 40 graduate students in residence whose programs are funded from university

  • Program Description
    all five years of the program During the first three semesters each student completes an initial research project culminating in the MA essay Subsequent research in conjunction with faculty members provides the basis for the dissertation The department is relatively small each year it admits about twelve full time students The obvious benefit to such a highly selective system is that it affords graduate students the opportunity to become acquainted with all research conducted in the department by faculty as well as fellow graduate students The program is a five year consecutive series of classes and research culminating in the Ph D degree All students accepted to the five year program receive a Faculty Fellowship which supports tuition health insurance fees and an annual stipend All fellows receive equal awards and the stipend level is adjusted each year to keep pace with inflation Additionally students receive subsidized housing near the campus Fellowships are awarded in recognition of academic achievement and in expectation of scholarly success Teaching and research experience are both considered to be central to the training of graduate students Thus graduate fellowships include some teaching and research apprenticeship Below is a timeline of what you can expect to be doing over the course of your five years in the program The First Year During your first year you ll become familiar with the literature in your area of interest by reading as much as you can meeting regularly with faculty members and attending lab meetings all of which help generate interesting ideas for research You ll begin planning and designing some research studies and collecting pilot data If you re eligible you can apply for Fellowship Awards e g National Science Foundation Fellowship You ll take the first two courses in the Proseminar seminar sequence a statistics course

  • Program Overview
    different trends of thought and frequently come upon the same ones from different angles But the separate stands of teaching are not knit together for them into a firm and patterned fabric No one cares how they arrange the threads that are placed in their hands The arrangement varies enormously from person to person Edna Heidbreder Seven Psychologies 1933 At the turn of the century the Columbia School of Psychology could be readily distinguished from other schools of psychology Behavioristic Psychoanalytic Gestalt The Columbia perspective focused on the dynamic nature of psychology It was concerned with the workings of the mind and why people do the things they do It was based on the premise that to understand these activities it is necessary to get as complete a view as possible of the process to be studied to follow it through its entire course to discover both its minute details and its broad tendencies to examine it both from within and from without and on the basis of this knowledge to note uniformities and to formulate laws Heidbreder 1993 To accomplish this objective each of psychology s three fundamental levels of analysis social cognitive and biological had to be strongly represented in the department Graduate training introduced students to each level With this background the student themselves could decide how to arrange the threads that are placed in their hands Our department continues to be guided by the belief that an interdisciplinary perspective from multiple levels of analysis contributes to a rich understanding of psychological processes Most of our faculty rub elbows with different disciplines and bridge different levels of analysis This provides the maximum opportunity and flexibility for our graduate students to discover their own preferred arrangement for pursuing the science of psychology Indeed some of our students move
