Welcome to Psychology at Georgia Tech.

 

Welcome to the School of Psychology at Georgia Tech. As you roam our webpage, you’ll notice that psychology at GaTech is rather unique in a number of ways.  You already know that we are embedded in one of the leading science and engineering institution of higher education in the world.  Unlike many of our peers, our home college is the College of Science, which also houses the likes of Chemistry, Physics, Biology, and Math.   You’ll see we have a structure of 5 programs that help us manage the research efforts and provide focused training to our graduate students, but I can tell you that all of the faculty move easily between areas.  Finally, you may notice that we are small, intentionally.  It allows us to focus our research and our training in a way that has made us exceptional.   

I hope you enjoy visiting us virtually, and hopefully someday in person.  The Faculty, Grad Students, Undergraduates, and Staff are eager to meet you. 

 

Ciao, 

Frank Durso

News and Notes

  • Welcoming New Colleagues, Celebrating Award Recipients

    The College of Sciences feted new colleagues joining in the 2017-18 academic year at a summer dinner on Sept. 6. Dean and Sutherland Chair Paul M. Goldbart and Jenny Singleton, associate chair and professor in the School of Psychology, hosted the celebration, which also recognized recipients of 2017 College of Sciences awards.

  • Eclipse Show Time at Georgia Tech

    The last blockbuster of the summer season promises to be more spectacular than any movie about superheroes or shape-shifting robots. This particular show has been going on since human history has been recorded, and it’s back once again to thrill and educate everyone, including the Georgia Tech community.

  • Researchers Use Eclipse Data to Create Musical Composition

    A team of Georgia Institute of Technology researchers has created an original music composition for Monday’s eclipse. The Georgia Tech Sonification Lab uses drums, synthesized tones and other sounds to symbolize the movements of the sun and moon and the gradual darkness they will produce during the August 21 event. The audio experience, which at times sounds both hopeful and ominous as it builds anticipation toward the moment of the total eclipse, includes several segments.

  • Searching for Science in the Solar Darkness

    For hundreds of years, scientists and historians have used solar eclipses to learn more about the nature of the sun and how it effects Earth. That will continue on Aug. 21, 2017, with Georgia Tech researchers joining the search for answers as the path of a total solar eclipse stretches across the U.S. 

  • How to Watch the Solar Eclipse at Georgia Tech

    The skies over Georgia Tech will be at 97 percent darkness during the Aug. 21, 2017, solar eclipse. Watfching the spectacle will require special eclipse-viewin glasses, but you'll also want to notice the changes in the environment around you as the skies get darker during this rare celestial event.
