With some of the first and longest standing Psychology programs at a Historically Black College or University, we are dedicated to bringing well-being and health to diverse groups in globally unserved settings by rigorously grounding psychological science in transcultural contexts.

The Department of Psychology offers admission to Ph.D. programs in the following major areas: clinical, developmental, neuropsychology, personality, and social psychology within the Graduate School. Each program builds upon the rich tradition of scholarship and advancing knowledge to improve the well-being of underserved communities with a focus on the Black experience.
