2. Princeton University - Department of Psychology The program of graduate work in psychology within the Department of Psychology emphasizes preparation for research and teaching in psychology, with specialization in the following broad areas: systems neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, perception and cognition, and personality and social psychology, and physiological psychology. All students are required to assist in teaching as part of their graduate education for at least three class hours during their graduate career. Instruction is based on the assumption that first-year students have had the equivalent of an undergraduate major in psychology, or related fields, but this is not a requirement for admission. Basic undergraduate training in science and mathematics is also highly desirable. The program is designed to prepare students for attaining the degree of doctor of philosophy and a career of productive scholarship in psychology.
The department requires that candidates for admission take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Please note that applicants are not required to submit GRE Subject Test scores. The University's code for submitting scores is 2672. No department code is required.

3. Stanford University - Department of Psychology THE CONTEMPORARY DEPARTMENT: 1980s AND BEYOND The department entered this period with new facilities and a strong faculty. More than ten of the faculty were Fellows of the Academy of Arts and Sciences and a number were Fellows of the National Academy of Science. There were departures from the faculty. Atkinson left for the National Science Foundation, Alex Bavelas, Daryl and Sandra Bem, Walter Mischell, Richard Thompson left for other universities. New appointments included Roger Shepard, David Rosenhan, John Flavell, Anne Fernald, John Gabrieli, Laura Carstensen, and Ian Gotlib, Hazel Markus, Ellen Markman, Claude Steele, Bryan Wandell, Robert Zajonc, and Philip Zimbardo.
4. University of California, Berkeley (UCB) - Department of Psychology The discipline of psychology is dedicated to the scientific study of the mind, brain, and behavior. As scientists, we seek to understand how living organisms, including people, think and act, as individuals and in groups. Psychology has become highly interdisciplinary, with our understanding of behavior not only benefiting from developments in our own field, but also those in neuroscience, ethology, sociology, cultural studies, and psychiatry.
The Department of Psychology at UC Berkeley has an exceptional history of training students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. We strive to provide a comprehensive education in psychological sciences and, more generally, to foster the critical thinking skills that are essential for all facets of life.
5. University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) - Department of Psychology The United States along with much of the world is facing a health crisis. Chronic diseases have replaced acute diseases as the main health threats that face Americans, and America’s aging population exacerbates this crisis. What can we do to improve health in our country—and what type of research is needed to help us find a solution?
Any solution will require multidisciplinary science that integrates behavior and biology. This is one of the areas in which UCLA’s Health Psychology program excels, and Dr. Tomiyama’s research embraces this multidisciplinary approach. Her research takes place at the intersection of eating behavior, psychological stress, and cellular aging, and her work spans macro factors like socioeconomic status to micro factors like telomere shortening.
6. University of Cambridge - Department of Psychology The Department of Psychology is part of the School of the Biological Sciences in the University of Cambridge. It is located on two sites in central Cambridge. The Department's research groups and labs carry out leading-edge psychological and neuroscientific research of world-class standard. The Department is placed second in the QS World University Rankings for Psychology, and was ranked as the leading psychology department in the UK in Unit of Assessment 44 at the last Research Assessment Exercise, conducted by the Higher Education Funding Council for England. Inspirational teaching, for which the Department is celebrated, is delivered by academic staff of international standing; many of its past students have gone on to prominent positions in psychology and related fields throughout the world.
7. University of Harvard - Department of Psychology The field of Psychology first emerged at Harvard in the late 1800's under the scholarship of William James, and ever since then Harvard has been at the forefront of the field. B.F. Skinner, Gordon Allport, Jerome Bruner, George Miller, and Henry Murray are some of the pioneers who have worked in the Department of Psychology, which continues to be among the country's top-ranked programs.
8. University of Melbourne - School of Psychological Sciences Psychology at the University of Melbourne has a long and distinguished history. The first paper set in Psychology was in February 1888 and the Department of Psychology was founded in 1946. The Melbourne School of Psychological Sciences has been ranked in the top three nationally for the quality of its research, and recently rated 15th in the world and number one in Australia by QS global rankings.
9. University of Oxford - Department of Experimental Psychology Psychology at Oxford University is taught as a scientific discipline and covers the core areas of abnormal, biological, cognitive, developmental and social psychology in an intellectually stimulating manner, supported by state-of-the-art facilities. We aim to provide students with key skills that can be transferred into professional practice.
We offer a single honours degree in Experimental Psychology (EP) and a joint honours degree in Psychology, Philosophy and Linguistics (PPL), reflecting our close links with other departments within the university.
10. Yale University - Department of Psychology These are remarkable times for psychology. Scientific breakthroughs concerning the biological, emotional, cognitive, and social basis of normal and abnormal behavior are reported in the media almost daily. The faculty associated with the Department of Psychology at Yale University represents the cutting edge of research and scholarship in this broad and exciting field.
The primary goal of graduate education in psychology at Yale University is the training of researchers, for academic and applied settings, who will broaden and deepen the knowledge base on which the science of psychology rests. The graduate program in the Department of Psychology annually enrolls about 15 new Ph.D. students. When applying to the Department, each potential graduate student indicates one of five areas of concentration, and usually has a “home” in a particular lab, but it is also possible to collaborate with faculty and students in other labs and participate in programs that cut across these traditional areas (e.g., cognitive, affective and social neuroscience; health sciences).
