Our Faculty

The core faculty members have interesting and diverse research and applied interests. Even so, a common thread runs through the research programs, namely, college student development, adjustment, and well-being.  The faculty have active, programmatic research lines in romantic/counseling attachment, grief and bereavement issues, multicultural issues, and career development.

Degree Information

The CPSY program accepts applicants from both the master's and bachelor's level. The application deadline is December 1st. Invited on-campus interviews will be on Friday, January 22nd, 2016.
