Program Description:

The graduate program in psychology offers a Master of Science degree in General Psychology. Coursework is intended to offer advanced education in psychological science and to help students become competitive for admission to doctoral-level training programs in both applied (e.g., clinical, counseling) and experimental (e.g., cognitive, developmental) fields of study in psychology. The Psychology Master's degree is not intended for students seeking master's-level professional licensure.

The program provides foundational training in core areas of psychology, but also provides students the flexibility to design a sequence of coursework best suited to their future academic and career aspirations. All students seeking a master's degree in psychology must complete a thesis under the supervision of a graduate faculty member. Faculty members have expertise in Clinical, Cognitive, Counseling, Developmental, Educational, Physiological, and Social Psychology, as well as specialties in Behavior Analysis and Health.
