Psychology PhD Programs

The departments offers PhD programs in …

Clinical Psychology

The UWM Clinical Psychology program strongly believes in the scientist-practitioner model of training. The UWM Clinical Psychology Program is designed to train psychologists as generalists. However, our faculty research/clinical interests cluster in three primary areas including neuroscience/neuropsychology, behavior therapy, and pediatric/health psychology.

Experimental Psychology

The Experimental Psychology program follows an apprenticeship model in which the student is exposed to individualized research experiences within the laboratories of one or more faculty members. This research training is accompanied by a integrated concentration of courses and seminars that support development of an area of specialty. Specific patterns of study vary, depending on student’s particular interests as well as those of his or her major professor.
