The Department is organized into four Research Programs:

Each consists of a group of faculty members who jointly administer graduate admissions and training in some subfield of psychology. Individual faculty and graduate students typically participate in more than one program, which are set up more for administrative convenience, not as a commitment to any boundaries to research, teaching, or graduate training.

The Department of Psychology also provides opportunities for anyone interested in participating in psychology research studies at Harvard and for Harvard researchers who run those studies.

The Research Integrity Resources Initiative:  The Research Integrity Resources Initiative provides tools to support the stewardship of strong research data, to manage conflict, communication, and/or behavioral concerns to avoid misunderstandings that may lead to allegations of research misconduct, and to foster an environment of transparency and stronger data integrity among members of a research team.
