Law and Psychology, PhD

Home / Law and Psychology, PhD

The PhD program in law and psychology is designed to train a new generation of scholars in the field by taking a broad interdisciplinary approach that combines rigorous training in the law and psychology field with training in advanced research methodology and statistics, criminological theory, and contextual training in other subfields of psychology. The goal of the program is for students to use this knowledge to tackle the many important but understudied areas where the legal system is in desperate need of empirical psychological research.
