About the Department of Psychology
Psychology seeks the answers to a variety of questions regarding brain function and the behavior, thoughts and emotions of individuals. These questions range from the biochemical basis of memory and the effects of stress on health, to understanding the causes of emotional problems or experiences such as falling in love. Students pursuing Bachelor’s, Master’s or Doctoral degrees in the Department of Psychology at Drexel study these questions alongside award-winning faculty using scientific research techniques both in the laboratory and in the real world. The answers are applied in diverse fields, including business, the health sciences, law, education, counseling, and the design of useful and usable technologies.
Recently ranked 7th nationally among colleges offering doctoral programs in clinical psychology, the department’s community of researchers and scholars is dedicated to training students for rigorous graduate study programs and professional careers in psychology.
