Our Graduate Programs
Wayne State University's Department of Psychology provides a broad spectrum of graduate education that prepares students for careers in both academic and applied settings. Our graduates are prepared to function effectively as research scientists, scholar-teachers at colleges or universities, and professionals in business and industry, health care, schools, and government agencies. We have a dynamic and dedicated faculty with wide ranging interests and active research programs in almost all areas of modern psychology. Although we are located in a large metropolitan community, the Department maintains a sense of cohesiveness among the faculty and graduate students. At Wayne State, graduate education is much more than course work: It is also the small seminar, the informal discussion group, the intense collaboration of student and faculty member on a research project of great interest to both. Our goal is to make the Psychology Department a learning community for all of us.
