Summary or Abstract : The rise of scientific or experimental psychology in the United States coincides nearly exactly with fundamental transformations in American higher education. In the decades leading up to the close of the nineteenth century, American colleges and universities underwent extensive changes in both structure and purpose. It was during the same period that psychology separated from its philosophical origins and became commonly understood as an experimental science. The self-definition of American psychology, as well as the resulting shape and character of the field, was profoundly dependent on the academic context. This dissertation develops the relationship between psychology and its academic institutions in a systematic and wide-ranging fashion. Using the well-developed literature on the history of psychology in the research universities as a starting point, it extends from there into questions of psychology's position within other types of academic institutions, dealing specifically with women's colleges, state universities, and normal schools. This project tracks the growth of the discipline of psychology in relation to its material and instructional culture, and to the shifting definitions of science and scientific practice within the American higher educational system. In particular, it illustrates the ways in which the multifaceted nature of academic environments nourished and developed the new discipline, including not only the better-known research universities but also sites that are less well-studied but no less significant..
