The Department of Psychology of Bucknell University offers a Master of Science in general experimental psychology for qualified candidates. 


Psychology of Bucknell University is a full-time, two-year course of study in general experimental psychology. Our program is small and selective, accepting two to three students per year. Many graduates continue on to a doctoral program in clinical or cognitive psychology, human development, neuroscience, social psychology or behavioral medicine, among other fields.

Key facts:

Each semester, students take two courses, conduct research with their faculty adviser and serve as a teaching assistant, typically in our Introduction to Psychology or Psychological Statistics course. Students choose their courses in consultation with their adviser and can select some courses in departments other than psychology. Teaching assistantship experiences, in different courses with different professors, provide students with valuable breadth in their training. During their second year, students complete a thesis based on original empirical work.
