Diversifying Psychology Visit Day

Diversifying Psychology Visit Day at Syracuse University is designed to prepare talented minority students for graduate school by providing a venue to network with faculty and graduate students in Psychology and get the scoop on the graduate student experience.

Throughout the day, Psychology Department faculty and graduate students will highlight the value and strengths of our Clinical, Cognition, Brain and Behavior, School and Social Psychology doctoral programs, showcase the differences and advantages of our community, and share tips on how to navigate the graduate school admissions process.

Successful applicants will have a strong interest in pursuing a doctoral degree in psychology, be enrolled at a college university or have graduated with an undergraduate degree within the past 3 years, and identify as an ethnic/racial minority traditionally underrepresented in psychology.*

Programming for the Visit Day includes panel discussions, seminars, research presentations, workshops, meals with faculty and graduate students, and a tour of the Syracuse University campus.
