Master of Science in Experimental Psychology
Whether you’re planning to pursue a Ph.D. program or looking to enter a research-intensive job right away, the master’s program in Experimental Psychology will help get you there. We train students in the scientific methods of psychology, so you’ll be ready to work in either academic or applied settings — from lab assistants and science writers to college instructors and academic researchers. We offer concentrations in Behavioral Neuroscience, Cognitive Neuroscience, and Behavioral Sciences — all with a thesis. In addition, we offer concentrations in Data Visualization and Analysis and Psychological Science without a thesis. Whichever you choose, you’ll find individualized research training and mentoring, state-of-the-art facilities, and outstanding faculty with a wide range of expertise.
In this two-year, research-intensive program, all students are paired with a faculty member by the end of their first semester for immersive research experience in our advanced facilities, including animal and eye-tracking laboratories. Every semester students take three courses: two content courses and one course dedicated to development of the students’ mentored research. This work culminates in either a thesis, literature review, or data analysis project at the end of the second year.
