Individual Faculty

Many students choose to enroll in other degree programs (e.g., other disciplines within psychology such as clinical or organizational, education doctoral programs, business / organizational Ph.D. programs, etc.) but focus their research on topics within those programs that might be considered positive psychology.  To explore such options, prospective doctoral students interested in positive psychology are encouraged to contact researchers in the field with whom they would like to work.
