Academics

Undergraduate program

The psychology undergraduate curriculum is structured to provide students with four key elements:

  • An overview of the range of topics that make up the discipline of psychology
  • Skills in constructing evidence-based arguments using critical and quantitative reasoning
  • An opportunity to concentrate in an area of focus within the discipline
  • A capstone experience

We also offer a neuroscience co-major or minor and a number of co-curricular opportunities in research, teaching, and internships.

Graduate Programs

Miami’s graduate program in psychology offers Ph.D.s in psychology in three areas. The program offers emphases on research, teaching, and applied work in psychology. Our program does not offer a terminal Master’s degree.

We have approximately 80 graduate students at various stages of the program, who are engaged in cutting edge research across disciplines. Our students publish research in top psychology journals and present dozens of presentations at professional conferences each year.
