Welcome to the Department of Psychology at Howard University. We are a dynamic unit within a comprehensive research-oriented institution. Consistent with the university's mission and core values, our department is committed to providing an educational experience of exceptional quality to students from internationally diverse backgrounds.
Our focus on scholarship, research, and service provides an excellent foundation for graduates of the program to pursue careers in the psychological sciences or related fields.
The department offers Bachelor of Science (B.S.) and Doctoral (Ph.D.) degrees in Psychology, with the latter focusing on one of several graduate-level concentrations including Clinical, Cognitive, Developmental, Experimental, Neuropsychology, Personality, and Social Psychology.
Our faculty members are actively engaged in innovative research that provides an opportunity for students to learn about rigorous scientific methods, while asking empirical questions about human behavior and mental processes. Emphasis on exploring these questions from the lens of an African diasporic experience is a unique aspect and strength of our program.
We invite you to explore the site, visit our main office, or contact us via phone or email if you would like more information about the program.
Thank you for your interest in our department!
