Program Description:

Kaplan University’s Master of Science in Psychology could help you develop the skills and knowledge to become more marketable in the field. This graduate degree offers three career focused concentrations: addictions, behavior analysis, and industrial/organizational psychology. The course sequence for the applied behavioral analysis concentration is approved by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board,® Inc., (BACB®) and students who complete the addictions concentration meet the coursework requirements to take the Master Addiction Counselor (MAC) certification examinations.* Together with a community of faculty members with years of experience in these field, Kaplan University is committed to helping you succeed in achieving your educational and professional goals as well as succeeding in the market place.†  
 
*The BACB preapproves university training as meeting its eligibility requirements; it does not accredit university programs. To become certified, students will need to obtain the necessary number of hours of field experience under an appropriate supervisor, as required by the BACB, meet additional degree and practicum requirements, and must also pass the comprehensive exam. Refer to the BACB’s website (www.bacb.com/) for full eligibility requirements.

Note that additional requirements must also be completed to take the MAC examination, including degree, field experience, and licensure requirements. Refer to www.NAADAC.org for full eligibility requirements, including state-specific information.

†Kaplan University cannot guarantee employment or career advancement. Additional training or certification may be required. The professional practice of psychology is regulated by each state, and the degree requirements in this program do not prepare graduates for state licensure. It is important to note that, while earning a master’s degree in psychology may qualify you to work in the helping professions, a doctorate degree is required to become a psychologist and a medical degree is required to become a psychiatrist. Licensure exams may also be required. Students should research the requirements in the state in which they intend to seek employment.
