Are you thinking about a doctoral degree in psychology? 

Do you want to learn more?

Diversifying Psychology Visit Day

This event is for research-oriented, junior and senior undergraduate students and recent graduates from underrepresented groups (e.g., students who identify as a historically underrepresented ethnic/racial minority or who are the first in their family to attend college) who want to learn more about getting a doctoral degree in psychology and the Psychology Department at UVA (http://psychology.as.virginia.edu/).
