Degree Programs

Doctor of Philosophy

In addition to the specific requirements listed below, see the Doctoral Degrees section of the Rackham Graduate School Academic Policies.

Admission: A Rackham Application for Graduate Studies is required. Applicants must also take the Graduate Record Examination offered by the Educational Testing Service, Princeton, New Jersey. Reports should be sent to the University of Michigan using Institution Code 1839. Three letters of recommendation are required. See departmental website for additional admission requirements.

The Deadline for Admission is December 1.

Specific Course Requirements: In addition to the Graduate School requirement of four credits of cognate coursework, the Department requires students to pass: at a B- level a one semester departmental proseminar, a breadth requirement core course as well as two or more core courses within the student's area of specialization, two-semester sequence of statistics, which must be completed by the end of the second year. Some areas within the Department of Psychology require additional coursework.

Areas of Specialization: The Psychology Department offers a Ph.D. program in six areas of psychology. These areas are: Biopsychology, Clinical, Cognition & Cognitive Neuroscience, Developmental, Personality & Social Contexts, and Social.

Research Requirement: Students are expected to be actively involved in research throughout their doctoral programs. However, the two required products are the pre-candidacy 619 Research Project and the dissertation, which is a report of independent research carried out at a considerably higher level of sophistication. The 619 Research requirement is typically begun in a student's first semester and must be completed before the student advances to candidacy.

Qualifying Examination: None.

Foreign Language Requirement: None.

Work Experience Requirement: None. Lab experience is highly recommended.

Preliminary Examination: The Candidacy Evaluation in the Department of Psychology assesses the degree to which students have integrated the research experience with their theoretical and substantive knowledge in their own broadly defined area of concentration as stated in each student's planned Program of Advanced Study. The evaluative process also requires reconciliation of the student's specialized interest with other relevant areas of psychological knowledge impinging on the area of concentration. The Candidacy Evaluation is scheduled after the student's Advisory Committee is satisfied that the student has reached the level of preparation over-all that qualifies her or him to devote full time to research and independent study.

Dissertation Prospectus: A prospectus of the dissertation should be submitted to the dissertation committee upon application for candidacy status.

Candidate Status: To qualify for the status of Candidate the student must meet area requirements as well as those stipulated by the department and the Rackham Graduate School. See the Doctoral Degrees section of the Rackham Graduate School Academic Policies for general regulations.

For information on the dissertation committee, final oral examination, and publication of dissertation, see the Rackham Graduate School Academic Policies.
