The Psychology program from Portland State University has a curriculum that allows you to complete a master's degree on the way to a doctoral degree. You'll learn to use innovative conceptual and methodological tools while working closely in faculty teams with community partners to understand and solve social problems.
The faculty are clustered in five concentrations — applied developmental psychology, applied social psychology, community psychology, industrial and organizational psychology, and applied quantitative psychology — and provide you with a rich training experience in an apprenticeship model. With cohorts of 10 to 12 students each and a small faculty-to-student ratio, we will ensure that you have the support and experience you need to succeed.
The graduates are in high demand and you’ll leave our program prepared to work in a variety of applied research and academic settings, including private and public organizations, research institutes, and universities.
The graduates go on to positions all over the country, in a range of settings, from private and public organizations to research institutes and universities.
Recent alumni have been hired at Stanford University, Harvard School of Public Health, Colorado State University, Brigham Young University Portland Public Schools, Oregon Departments of Education and Corrections, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Multnomah County Health Department, Amazon, Microsoft, NW Natural, NASA, the National Institute of Mental Health, Northwest Professional Consortium, Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety, Oregon Geriatric Education Center, and at health insurance firms.
