Terminal Masters students are admitted into a General Experimental Psychology program and typically will work with a faculty member from one of our experimental areas, although clinical faculty may also supervise students’ research programs. These research areas include developmental, cognitive and social psychology, as well as psychopathology and developmental psychopathology. We also have faculty qualified to direct theses in quantitative psychology and biological psychology. Students are encouraged to become familiar with research being carried on throughout the department by attending colloquia and lab meetings, and by participating in research opportunities in any lab in which facilities can be made available.
Faculty work closely with students. The primary goal of the Terminal Masters degree track is to develop competence in the core areas of psychology and their methods. Students are expected to demonstrate competence in research and have the skills and moral standards to apply the knowledge of the discipline competently and ethically in their daily lives and careers. The degree culminates in the preparation of a research thesis based on original laboratory research.
