The Graduate Field of Psychology includes 39 faculty members from departments across the university includng Psychology, Human Development, and Neurobiology and Behavior. Only Ph.D. candidates are admitted. The Field does not have an M.A. program. The goal of the Field is to educate students to become researchers, scholars, and teachers who will contribute to the future of psychology as a scientific discipline in academic or other research-oriented settings.
The dominant strengths of the Field lie in three broadly defined areas: behavioral and evolutionary neuroscience, cognition and perception, and social/personality psychology. We do not offer training in clinical psychology, counseling, school psychology, community psychology, industrial psychology, or clinical neuropsychology. Applicants with primary interests in these subjects are not admitted.
Do NOT send paper copies of recommendation letters, transcripts, or other application materials to Cornell Graduate School or Departmental offices. Only pdf files will be accepted.
