About

The Department of Psychology at Virginia Tech offers a graduate program leading to the Ph.D. in four concentration areas: Biological Psychology, Clinical Science, Developmental Science, and Industrial/Organizational Psychology. 

Overview

Key facts:

Applications from students with either bachelors or advanced degrees are welcomed. Although the graduate curriculum is organized into four specialty areas, all share the same philosophy: to assure that all graduate students are provided with the conceptual, quantitative, and methodological skills necessary to solve theoretical and applied problems.
