The mission of Div. 3 is as follows:

  • Promote research and teaching in the general field of experimental psychology and its many subdisciplines.
  • Stimulate the exchange of information among its members and with other sciences.
  • Support experimental psychology — and the science of psychology more broadly — through research, advocacy, education and training, service, policy, leadership in APA governance and collaboration with APA's directorates.

Our members do basic and applied research in varied settings on topics covered by the five flagship Journals of Experimental Psychology. We enthusiastically welcome members who do experimental work in any area of psychology.

APA's Annual Convention

Div. 3 offers a diversity of programming at APA's annual convention, including talks, poster sessions, symposia and other events focused on experimental psychology and cognitive science. The 2020 convention will take place Aug. 6-9 in Washington, D.C.

More information about convention can be found on APA's website and more information about events that may be of interest to Div. 3 members is also available on APA's events calendar.
