Experimental psychology is a research approach incorporating various psychological disciplines to better understand human behavior.

Experimental psychology is utilized to better understand human development, mental health, cognitive processes, and various other concepts.

Most experimental psychologists study general or a branch of psychology as undergraduates. They then typically complete graduate degree programs in experimental psychology. However, many experimental psychologists hold graduate degrees in general psychology or a related field. Experimental psychology master's degree programs typically take 2 years to complete. Most experimental psychologists who work as researchers at universities and other institutions hold doctorate degrees.

Students admitted to experimental psychology doctorate programs usually hold master's degrees in psychology. It usually requires 3 years of study to complete one of these programs.
