Tracks & Programs

The concentration in psychology offers students three tracks to choose from:

  1. The General Track affords the greatest flexibility, and is chosen by about 70% of concentrators.
  2. The Cognitive Neuroscience and Evolutionary Psychology (a track within the Life Sciences cluster of concentrations) combines coursework from both psychology and several fields within the Life Sciences and is selected by about 25% of concentrators.
  3. The Cognitive Science Track (an MBB track) includes coursework from other MBB fields in addition to psychology coursework that informs an understanding of the mind such as linguistics, philosophy, human evolutionary biology, history of science, and computer science. This track requires an application for admission and a thesis, and is selected by about 5% of concentrators

Psychology also offers a secondary field.
