Psychology (M.S.)

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. 

Students may elect to complete a practicum experience, which involves training and experience in providing professional psychological services to members of the community. Students must meet prerequisites for practicum and be successfully evaluated before being admitted to the practicum course.
