University of Memphis
College of Arts and Sciences
The purpose of the M.S./Ph.D. program in Experimental Psychology is to train highly qualified students for careers in university, business, industry, and community settings. This program is designed around an apprenticeship model in which students and their major professors design training plans to meet the individual student's expectations and career goals. During the first two years, all M.S./Ph.D. students participate in a course designed to provide comprehensive exposure to theoretical and empirical issues in psychology; a course in research design and methodology; a course in statistics; and introductory courses in their specialty area. After the first year, students participate in advanced courses, seminars, and research practica, which become increasingly specialized. All students are expected to affiliate with at least one research group during each year and to maintain active research involvement each semester. Students are expected to take more responsibility for formulating and conducting scientific inquiries and for preparing reports for the scientific community as their training progresses.
