Located in the greater Boston area (Waltham, MA, just 10 miles from downtown Boston and recently named as the best place to live in Massachusetts), we offer graduate training in a mentorship-based research program. The Master of Arts program provides students with an understanding of the scientific foundations of psychology and direct experience in research methods. Our doctoral program develops excellent researchers and teachers who will become leaders in psychological science. The PhD program offers a track in the integrated study of Brain, Body, and Behavior, funded by a NIGMS training grant.
