Psychology is the science of mind, brain, and behavior. The Department of Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania is the oldest continuously functioning psychology department in North America and has a rich history. Consistently ranked among the top Psychology Departments in the world, its graduate program has produced a disproportionate number of today's leading psychological scientists (see list). Today, the department's faculty apply rigorous methods to answer questions in a wide range of overlapping research areas.
