Welcome to the Frances L. Hiatt School of Psychology

Clark University has trained and hosted some of the world’s most notable psychologists since G. Stanley Hall, Clark’s first president, established the discipline here in the late 1800s. Today, undergraduate and doctoral students work with faculty to examine human behavior through research and experiential learning opportunities in order to understand the impact of actions and experiences on individuals and societies.
