Graduate Study in Other Areas

Other current interests of the faculty include feminist approaches to thinking and self, cognition and instruction, and the psychophysics of taste and smell. Teaching and research emphasize theoretical relevance and preserving and exploring the connections among areas of specialization. Faculty and students typically maintain extensive and regular interactions. In particular, most of the faculty have close connections with all the programs. The department also has education research ties with a number of institutions in the Worcester-Boston area (e.g., the Neuropsychology Unit of the Boston Veterans Administration Hospital, the Worcester Foundation for Experimental Biology, the University of Massachusetts Medical School), as well as other departments at Clark. For further information, write to the chair of the department, Marianne Wiser at mwiser@clarku.edu.

Graduate Program

M.A. Degree

The M.A. degree is not required for completion of the doctoral degree. All students complete an independent research project by the end of their second year and present the results at a departmental conference. Students may choose to write up their research in the form of a master’s thesis and submit it to the graduate school in order to receive an M.A. degree.
