Master of Arts in Psychology

The MA in Psychology is an experimentally-oriented program that concentrates on the scientific sub-disciplines of psychology. The program is designed to give students a broad foundation in psychological science and does not provide training in the delivery of psychological services. The flexibility of the curriculum allows students the opportunity to pursue their personal academic and research interests, and concentrations in other fields - such as Criminal Justice and Business - are possible. All students are initially admitted to the non-thesis degree plan, but students may pursue a formal thesis when a faculty mentor supports their prospectus and agrees to supervise their thesis research.  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.
