About the Psychology department:
The Department of Psychology (https://psychology.gmu.edu/) has over 1,250 undergraduate majors and over 200 graduate students. With this number of students and over 40 faculty members, psychology is one of the largest departments in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, which is one of the largest colleges at George Mason. Our department is guided by three primary foci. 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) and one of the 20 most diverse public universities in the country (https://www2.gmu.edu/news/588496). Second, in line with George Mason’s Carnegie classification as a Research I university, 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 students across all five of our graduate programs (applied developmental psychology, clinical psychology, industrial/organizational psychology, cognitive and behavioral neuroscience, and human factors and applied cognition). Faculty are highly dedicated to the success of our graduate students, and our programs’ rankings continue to rise.
