About

If you are looking for a Masters degree in Psychology in traditionally research focused areas, you are looking at the right web site. The MS program offered by the Department of Psychology is designed to provide students with the statistical and methodological background to go on to a PhD program in traditionally research-oriented areas or to obtain MS-level jobs in applied research settings. 

Overview

Historically, the program has been very successful in this respect. The vast majority of our graduates have either obtained admission to a PhD program or a Psychology-related job, typically in research. Those who go on to doctoral work often attend top name schools in their subareas. Those who pursue MS level jobs frequently gain employment conducting research for Health Science centers, test and measures companies, or the military.
