PSYC 5396. Assmt-Personlty& Psychoptholgy. 3 Hours.
Students develop competencies in the theory, administration, scoring, and interpretation of personality assessment instruments. Students receive supervised instruction throughout the duration of the course. Two separate sections of this course are offered, one focusing on objective measures (e.g., MMPI-2, PAI) and one focusing on projective measures (e.g., Rorschach).
Prerequisite: PSYC 5330.
The MA in Psychology concentrates on the scientific sub-disciplines of psychology. It does not provide training in the delivery of psychological services, but it does allow more flexibility than our other programs. Thus, students are provided the opportunity to pursue their personal academic and research interests, and concentrations in other fields - such as Criminal Justice and Business - are possible. Both thesis and non-thesis options are available. In addition, in order to graduate with an MA degree in this program, students will take a comprehensive examination which assesses their knowledge of the areas to which they have been exposed.
