All graduate students must take coursework in quantitative methods, and advanced research is being conducted by faculty interested in quantitative psychology. Current research foci include linear and non-linear structural equation modeling, dynamic systems modeling, optimal research design, and quantitative analysis of neuroimages. Topics of special interest include longitudinal latent variable models, growth curve models, applications of structural equation models to behavior genetics, analysis of individual and group differences in family studies of ability, and the development of numerical and graphical estimation techniques for multivariate models.
THE FOLLOWING FACULTY HOPE TO ADMIT GRADUATE STUDENTS TO THE QUANTITATIVE AREA FOR AUGUST 2023:
Hudson Golino and Xin (Cynthia) Tong.
The application for the PhD programs in the Department of Psychology has eliminated the GRE requirement, beginning with the applications for the 2021 admissions.
