Interdisciplinary Programs

Psychology department faculty have been founders of, and are closely connected to, several interdisciplinary programs. Those most closely related to psychology are:

  • Neuroscience Program – the integrated study of brain and behavior across the disciplines of psychology and biology
  • Cognitive Science – the integrated study of the mind across the disciplines of psychology, philosophy, and computer science
  • Leadership Studies – the integrated study of leadership across the disciplines of psychology, political science, and history
  • Legal Studies – the integrated study of legal issues across the disciplines of psychology, political science, forensic chemistry
  • Program in Teaching – provides courses, advising, colloquia and weekly lunch-discussion forums for students interested in teaching in primary and secondary schools (public, private and alternative) and in education more broadly. The director of the program is Professor Susan Engel.
