The psychology program contributes to the liberal education of Reed students by emphasizing the application of empirical methods to the study of cognitive, affective, social, and behavioral processes. Students conduct research with faculty mentors in the laboratory and in the field. Reed psychology students routinely present collaborative research at national and international scientific meetings, publish in scientific journals, and have demonstrated success in research grants, fellowships, and awards.
