The CDPP is strongly invested in preparing students to teach in University settings. The CDPP faculty take great pride in their contributions to undergraduate teaching at a leading liberal arts college and are eager to share their knowledge and experience with graduate student teaching assistants. CDPP students serve as teaching assistants in the department’s introductory psychology course sequence and the undergraduate abnormal psychology class. Many additional opportunities (e.g., Educational Psychology, Learning, Developmental Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Statistics, and Multivariate Statistics) are available to gain teaching experience at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
"One benefit of attending a Ph.D. program at a small liberal arts college is forming connections with faculty who are truly dedicated and accomplished scholars. In fact, being a part of the academic community at Bryn Mawr inspired me to go into academia, and I am now a faculty member at a small university with a liberal arts foundation."
