The Department of Psychology at Tufts University conducts cutting-edge interdisciplinary research aimed at understanding the causes and consequences of mental processes and behavior. Reflecting three centers of excellence, our work addresses social, cognitive, and neural levels of analysis across the areas of Biological Psychology, Cognitive Psychology/Cognitive Neuroscience, Developmental Psychology, Experimental Clinical Psychology, and Social Psychology.

We are innovative and interdisciplinary in our approach and emphasize understanding phenomena that have a direct impact on society. Importantly, scientists at all levels - faculty, postdoctoral trainees, and graduate and undergraduate students - engage in collaborative scholarship and critical thinking in the classroom and in the laboratory. This synthesis, between research and teaching, positions us to ask and answer fundamental questions while also enriching our students' understanding of psychology.
