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 institutions 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 which include Industrial-Organizational, Cognition and Brain Science, Cognitive Aging, Quantitative and Engineering Psychology that help us manage the research efforts and provide focused training to our graduate students, but 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.
The Faculty, Grad Students, Undergraduates, and Staff are eager to meet you.
