One of the great advantages of studying psychology at Stanford is the opportunity for students to become involved in ongoing research projects and to develop the skills necessary to conduct independent research. The first step in getting research experience is to serve as an "apprentice" with a researcher working on a project of interest.

Psychology is one of a handful of departments at Stanford that is ranked number one in the nation, and it has been for more than fifty years. This extraordinary achievement was honored by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C. in 2003.

Stanford has been the leading psychology department among American universities for decades. Using state of the art tools, their faculty enhance their teaching mission with interdisciplinary collaboration and a wide range of research interests, including: vision and perception; memory; language and cognition; emotion; and culture and society.

The Department is organized into five different areas of study within the field of psychology. They are: Cognitive, Developmental, Neuroscience, Personality and Social Psychology. These areas consist of faculty members who manage labs and train graduate students, undergraduate students, postdoctoral fellows and research staff. Some faculty have more than one area of focus, and students are encouraged to work across areas as well.

In their research, Psychology department faculty members use a fantastic array of tool. They use magnetic resonance imaging to measure the brain; they use the Bing Nursery school to study the behavior of children; they use genetics to gain deeper insight into the causes and cures for depression; they use advanced mathematical modeling to understand thought. Their commitment to research has also been recognized by many rewards. The department has had nine members of the National Academy of Science, two members of the Institute of Medicine, and ten members of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Their department has more members of the National Academies than can be found in most major universities.
