Welcome to the NYU Department of Psychology. We offer undergraduate, masters, and doctoral degrees. The undergraduate psychology major is one of the most popular at NYU. We offer two PhD programs, Cognition & Perception, and Social Psychology, a Concentration in Developmental Psychology, and two MA programs, General and Industrial/Organizational (I/O) Psychology. Research in our department spans a broad range of topics from the neural bases of perception and cognition to how goals, plans and motivations affect cognition and social interactions. Involvement in this research is the core of our graduate training, and a valuable opportunity for undergraduates planning to pursue scientific careers.

We encourage all prospective students to check out our faculty page, which gives a one-sentence summary of each lab’s research.
