Course Information

The Master’s Degree in Psychological Science is a research-intensive program of specialized study designed for individuals in pursuit of advanced-level training in psychology before seeking admission to doctoral (Ph.D.) programs in psychology or related fields, or entrance into the labor force as applied researchers or community college faculty. In addition to advanced instruction in research methods and statistical analysis, students will deepen their education in several core content areas of psychological science.

We intentionally admit a small number of students to allow close research collaborations between students and faculty. Students are encouraged to conduct their own research and communicate their work through professional presentations and publications.
