The Psychology - Psychological Science program from DePaul University is a highly competitive program that involves research and scholarship focusing on the psychological foundations of human thought and behavior.


As you work on your PhD in psychology, you’ll be mentored by a faculty member who specializes in developmental psychology, social psychology, or cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience.

The Psychology - Psychological Science is a combined degree from DePaul University. The MA is non-terminal and, therefore, only students intending to earn the PhD are admitted. Classes are offered during the day on the Lincoln Park Campus and the program can be completed in four years.
