The Department of Psychology is organized into specialized programs that reflect the contemporary state of the discipline as well as the wide-ranging interests of its own faculty. These programs are:
- Cognition, Marc Berman (Chair)
- Computational Cognitive Neuroscience, Edward S. Awh (Chair)
- Developmental Psychology, Alex Shaw (Chair)
- Integrative Neuroscience, Sarah London (Chair)
- Social Psychology, Shigehiro Oishi (Chair)
Consistent with the interdisciplinary traditions of the University of Chicago, many faculty members serve on more than one of the department's programs. Greg Norman serves as Director of Graduate Studies.
