School Overview

School Info

Introduction The Department of Psychology at the University of South Florida is committed to furthering our understanding of behavior and mental processes by utilizing the methods of science in both basic and applied research. We seek to train graduate students as independent scholars as they affiliate with one or more of the broad spectrum of research programs carried out by our faculty. By emphasizing the importance of research, teaching, and other scholarly endeavors, we hope to instill in our graduates a firm commitment to the pursuit of knowledge as well as a strong determination to find solutions for pressing human problems. Programs Given the large variety of research that is conducted here in the department, we have organized our graduate program into three areas of study: Clinical, CNS (Cognition, Neuroscience, and Social Psychology), or Industrial Organizational. You can find more information about each program by clicking on the links above or by reviewing the information on our Admission page. Application Information Students are admitted to one of the three Ph.D. programs. We do not offer a terminal masters degree as we expect each of our graduate students to work toward the Ph.D. For more information and application materials, please visit our Admission page.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
