Students in the Psychology program at Auburn University at Montgomery can graduate either by completing a practicum, or by successfully completing and defending an original research project (thesis). As such, our program offers two tracks: a thesis track and a practicum track.


Students at the Psychology program at Auburn University at Montgomery can also choose to complete both tracks. In this scenario, the thesis satisfies the graduation requirement, and a practicum is undertaken to either strengthen the student’s academic vita or to help her or him pursue post-Master’s employment in a clinical setting. 

Thesis Track

A thesis is a guided research experience that is supposed to help students learn to produce and publish original research. A thesis is required for those that plan to also go on to a doctoral program. Students need to work closely with their academic advisor to make sure they are registering for courses that will lead towards completion of one of these programs of study. The department has a once-a-year admission policy (fall only). Thus each class is fall start cohort.
