The annual deadline for applying to the social psychology doctoral program is December 15 for entry into the program the following August. Submit applications online through this portal. The social psychology program has an admissions committee composed both of faculty members and graduate students. The committee evaluates the suitability of each applicant as a prospective student in the social psychology program. It also evaluates whether particular candidates may be better matches with different faculty advisors, even when the student has not listed this person as their preferred choice. In such cases, the applicant is contacted about the possibility of a switch.
The social psychology program does not ordinarily admit students without also providing support in the form of graduate assistantships or fellowships (see brochure here).
It is recommended that prospective applicants contact present faculty members in order to obtain more information (e.g., to inquire whether that faculty member is seeking new students).
The University of Connecticut encourages applications from under-represented groups, including minorities, women, and people with disabilities.
