Graduate Programs in Psychology


Psychology participates, along with the departments of Computer Science, Linguistics, and Philosophy, and the School of Education, in an interdisciplinary program of cognitive science. The program is intended to provide students with an interdisciplinary education as well as a deeper concentration in psychology. Doctoral students in Psychology are eligible to participate in the cognitive science program. Students who complete the requirements receive a special designation in cognitive science along with the Ph.D. in Psychology. To receive this field designation, students must complete 30 units of approved courses, 18 of which must be taken in two disciplines outside psychology. For information or course approval, contact the student services office.


The Psychology Colloquium meets on most Wednesday afternoons at 3:45 pm. Speakers from Stanford and other institutions present topics of current interest. Graduate students are expected to attend. Additional announcements may be found at
