Welcome to Psychology at Georgia Tech.
Welcome to the School of Psychology at Georgia Tech. As you roam our webpage, you’ll notice that psychology at GaTech is rather unique in a number of ways. You already know that we are embedded in one of the leading science and engineering institutions of higher education in the world. Unlike many of our peers, our home college is the College of Science, which also houses the likes of Chemistry, Physics, Biology, and Math. You’ll see we have a structure of 5 programs which include Industrial Organizational, Cognition and Brain Science, Cognitive Aging, Quantitative and Engineering Psychology that help us manage the research efforts and provide focused training to our graduate students, but I can tell you that all of the faculty move easily between areas. Finally, you may notice that we are small, intentionally. It allows us to focus our research and our training in a way that has made us exceptional.
I hope you enjoy visiting us virtually, and hopefully someday in person. The Faculty, Grad Students, Undergraduates, and Staff are eager to meet you.

From credit hours to undergraduate research and getting help with course work, here are answers to questions frequently asked by new and returning students.
Insects aren't scary, they're just disgusting, suggests a study by School of Psychology Professor Eric Schumacher and the pest control company Orkin. Schumacher imaged the brain activity of individuals viewing videos of insects in various environments, as well as scary animals such as sharks and crocodiles. With nearly every participant, images of insects triggered the brain region associated with disgust. Seventy percent of participants reported mild to severe anxiety when viewing insects.
