The Psychology MSc program offered by Arizona State University has two main options. One is an intensive, research-oriented program culminating in a thesis or applied project.


Students receive training in advanced research methodology and statistical analysis, grant proposal writing, laboratory instrumentation, data collection and manuscript development.
