About the Department

Welcome to Florida State University's Department of Psychology! Our department is home to world-class scholars whose research consistently attracts national and international recognition. In addition to excelling in research, our faculty are recognized for excellence in teaching. We offer undergraduate degrees in Psychology as well as Neuroscience. At the graduate level, we provide specialized doctoral training in multiple areas of Psychology (Clinical, Cognition and Cognitive Neuroscience, Developmental, Social) and in Neuroscience. We also offer a master’s degree in Applied Behavior Analysis at our Panama City Campus. Our graduate students also receive essential training in scientific communication and classroom instruction, provided in part by our outstanding Teaching Faculty.

Students at all levels of training have access to the mentoring and resources they need to achieve distinction in their areas of study. This includes a strong commitment to human diversity, an established program for involving students in research, scholarships and grants for student-initiated research, a Psychology in London program, and an active Psi Chi chapter that hosts events celebrating undergraduate student research and service. Our commitment to research and teaching is aided by our 103,000-square-foot building featuring classrooms, computer labs, and state-of-the art laboratories situated on the Florida State University science quadrangle.
