This program prepares students for research and teaching careers in affective science and social psychology.
Specific expertise of the program faculty includes emotion, social cognition, psychophysiology, and coping.
All program faculty participate in the Developmental
Cognitive Neuroscience program, but not all Affect/Social students participate in DCN (it is not a requirement
of the program). Students are trained to conduct research using methods of affective science, social and
cognitive psychology as well as developmental psychology, neuropsychology, and psychophysiology. In addition, students have the
opportunity to examine social psychological questions both in normal populations and in special populations,
such as individuals with autism or those with traumatic experiences. In addition to program faculty, students
often work with faculty in the cognitive, clinical, or developmental areas.
