The Department has particular strengths in several areas of research that transcend specific training areas. Learn more about these Departmental Bridge Topics.
The Department of Psychological Sciences offers a Graduate Certificate in Psychological Statistics. This is a graduate-level certification program that is available to students currently admitted to a graduate degree program at Purdue. Students earning the certificate will demonstrate a broad theoretical understanding of advanced quantitative methods. They will also learn the technical skills (e.g., software; computer programming) necessary to integrate these advanced methods into their substantive research programs.
