Overview

The  Psychology - General, Theoretical program at Fairleigh Dickinson University   is expected to take two years to complete for full-time students, but can be completed on a part-time basis for those working full-time. Students can be accepted for either the Fall or Spring semester; there are no application deadlines.

Comprehensive Exam or Master’s Thesis (6 Elective Credits)

In addition to the course requirements, candidates for the master’s degree must meet the following requirements:

The Comprehensive Examination may be taken a maximum of three times. Subsequent to an initial failure of the examination, the student must retake the entire examination. If this second examination results in failure, the student must petition the faculty for a third and final opportunity to sit for the exam.

This opportunity is contingent upon the student entering into a written agreement, approved by the program director and school director, which specifies a program of remedial studies potentially including formal course audits in areas of deficiency. The individual will be allowed to sit for the third examination only after completion of the agreed remedial program. The final and binding nature of this examination also will be a part of this written agreement. If a student completes a Master’s Thesis, the Comprehensive Examination will be waived.
