brain puzzlePsychology is the study of the mind. At Rutgers, we study psychology from different perspectives, including behavioral and systems neuroscience, clinical, cognitive, and social psychology. The mission of the Psychology Department faculty is to combine excellence in scientific research with excellence in teaching our graduate and undergraduate students.

The department encourages and enables undergraduate student research with faculty, offers a wide range of courses including an honors research major, and provides opportunities for fieldwork and internship experiences. Doctoral candidates study with accomplished faculty who are leaders in their field.
