George Mason University Department of Psychology

The Department of Psychology (https://psychology.gmu.edu/) has nearly 40 faculty, over 1,000 undergraduate majors, and over 200 graduate students. We are one of the largest departments in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, which is the largest academic unit at George Mason. Three primary foci guide our department.

First, the department is focused on fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion at all levels in our department and, more broadly, in our field. This mission is facilitated by our location in one of the most diverse regions of the country and by George Mason’s status as the most diverse university in Virginia (https://www2.gmu.edu/about-mason/diversity-mason).

Second, in line with George Mason’s Carnegie classification as a Research I university and its strategic goal of conducting research of consequence, our department focuses on being a prominent center for translational research. Faculty and students in our department conduct high quality, rigorous research on pressing problems and work to disseminate knowledge in both academic and non-academic circles.

Third, we focus strongly on our training of doctoral students across all five of our doctoral programs (applied developmental psychology, clinical psychology, industrial/organizational psychology, cognitive and behavioral neuroscience, and human factors and applied cognition). Our faculty are highly dedicated to the success of our doctoral students, and our programs have continually increased in rankings over the years.
