The Marietta College Master of Arts in Psychology (MAP) Program began in 2003. The program offers a rigorous academic curriculum in general psychology that covers the major subfields of psychology, as well as offering students the opportunity to obtain research and applied experience in psychology. 


Key Features

The goal of the program is to prepare students to prepare students for doctoral programs in psychology, or to prepare them to seek employment at the Master’s level in a psychologically related field.

The Psychology program at Marietta College has two completion “tracks”. The MA track is a full-time track (three graduate courses per semester) designed to be completed in two academic years. The second track is the BA/MA track, and is only available to full-time Marietta College undergraduate psychology majors.
