University of Arkansas' Graduate Psychology Programs

The University of Arkansas is the flagship campus of the University of Arkansas System, and is a high-activity Research University, as categorized by the Carnegie Foundation. The Department of Psychology believes that becoming a psychologist is a crucial aspect of pursuing a specialization in the field. For that reason, the first two years of both Ph.D. programs in the department give students a broad view of the field, as well as a sound methodology through a series of required courses, practical, and the development of a master's thesis.

Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology

The clinical psychology focus follows the scientist-practitioner model of psychologist training. With a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Arkansas, graduates will be prepared to become skilled mental health service providers and efficient, accurate researchers.

Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology

Experimental psychology is a little broader than the clinical program. Students in the Experimental psychology Ph.D. program can focus on social psychology, cognitive psychology, developmental psychology, and neuroscience. There is an emphasis of formal course work and laboratory research so that students are trained for both academic and non-academic careers.
