May 6th, 2022
The Georgetown University Psychology Department is a proud sponsor of BlackInPsych Week ’22. Help us support and promote Black voices in Psychology.
The Department of Psychology is located in White Gravenor Hall on the main campus of the university. The Department is home to a diverse and collaborative community of scholars who conduct research in psychology, neuroscience, and public policy, and who teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. Research by Faculty in the Department of Psychology—from basic science investigations of behavior and brain function to applications for public policy—is directed at Georgetown University’s goal of creating and communicating knowledge in the service of the common good.
Our Undergraduate Program offers a Major and a Minor in Psychology and provides a variety of opportunities for scholarship and extracurricular enrichment, including the Psi Chi International Honor Society in Psychology, a research-focused Honors Program, and research assistantships and volunteer opportunities in Faculty labs.
Our Graduate Program offers a five-year program of study in developmental science leading to a Ph.D. in Psychology, with concentrations in Human Development & Public Policy and Lifespan Cognitive Neuroscience. We also offer a dual degree combining a Ph.D. in Psychology and a Master of Public Policy degree in collaboration with the McCourt School of Public Policy. Additionally, students can apply simultaneously to the Psychology Ph.D. program and the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Cognitive Science program.
Members of the Department include Faculty, Ph.D. Students, Postdoctoral Fellows, Adjunct Lecturers, and Research and Administrative Staff.
We conduct research on psychological and behavioral processes across the lifespan.
Undergraduates learn about psychological phenomena both in the classroom and in the laboratory.
Graduate research in the Department often incorporates neuroimaging data collected at Georgetown’s Center for Functional and Molecular Imaging.
