Psychological Modeling Specialization

This program offers undergraduate students the chance to earn a letter of specialization in psychological modeling. Psychological modeling involves expressing psychological theories in mathematical form. Modeling techniques are becoming increasingly common across all fields of psychology, so gaining experience with these methods is critical for anyone who plans to pursue a career in research. The specialization program consists of a one-semester seminar course and two semesters of independent research in a psychology laboratory.

The Psychological Modeling Specialization also awards research grants to cover travel expenses for conferences. All students enrolled in the specialization will be eligible for the travel awards. A maximum of two travel awards will be granted per year, and students will apply by submitting a written description of the research project that they will present at the conference.

Please contact the program director for more information on program requirements and application procedures.
