Graduate Field of PsychologyThe Cornell Graduate School has a longstanding tradition of facilitating high quality research by reaching beyond traditional academic boundaries. To this end, all graduate programs at cornell are distinct from departments, although in some cases departments and fields may share common interests and members. The Department of Psychology has 29 Faculty memebers, most of which are located in Uris Hall. The Graduate Field of Psychology, however, includes 39 faculty members from departments across the university including Psychology, Human Development, and Neurobiology and Behavior. The responsibility of this diverse collection of faculty is to educate students to become researchers, scholars, and teachers who will contribute to the future of psychology as a scientific discipline in academic or other research-oriented settings.
