College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
The M.S. in Psychology degree program is particularly well suited to provide a strong foundation for individuals seeking entry into Ph.D. programs in most subfields of psychology. In addition, the program services the needs of students unsure of their future professional goals, of individuals wanting a more gradual transition between undergraduate and Ph.D. level work, and for those seeking a terminal master's degree.
While the program is not specifically designed to provide terminal training for mental health professionals, some of our graduates continue on to Ph.D. programs in clinical or counseling psychology. Others accept positions in the private sector as science writers, lab technicians, data analysts, marketing researchers, etc.
The program enjoys a strong national reputation, thereby contributing to the success which a large proportion of our graduates have in gaining admission to some of the top Ph.D. programs in psychology
Villanova and its programs have received accreditation through the Middle States Association of Colleges and secondary Schools
