Graduate Studies


The Department of Psychology at Florida State University offers focused PhD training in the five primary domains of the discipline – Clinical Psychology, Cognition and Cognitive Neuroscience, Developmental Psychology, and Social Psychology. Doctoral training in Neuroscience is offered to Psychology students through the interdepartmental FSU Program in Neuroscience. We also offer a Master's degree in Psychology with a specialization in Applied Behavior Analysis. This program allows students to complete their Master’s degree at both the FSU Tallahassee and FSU Panama City campuses.

Doctoral training in all areas occurs in world-class laboratories under the supervision of our internationally recognized faculty. All doctoral students accepted into our programs receive stipend support and tuition waivers – in return we ask students for the intense passion and dedication needed to address the difficult problems of human mind, brain, and behavior.
