The Rice University Department of Psychology, opened in 1963, serves both undergraduate and graduate students, offering a B.A. as well as M.A. and Ph.D. education and training. Its primary focus is on research in both clinical and applied areas. The Department of Psychology is housed in Sewall Hall.

David Schneider came to Rice as a Professor of Psychology in 1989, and served as Department Chair from 1990-1996. He earned his B.A. of Psychology and Philosophy from Wabash College in 1962, and earned his Ph.D. of Social Psychology from Stanford University in 1966. His research interests included stereotypes, prejudice, and the categorization of people.
