About

The flexibility of the M.A. Program in Psychology from New York University suits a broad range of students. Some students have decided on a particular focus when they enter our program, and take courses that fit these interests. 

Overview

However, students are not required to choose an area of focus. Some students enter our M.A. Program in Psychology from New York University with the intention of exploring the field of psychology. In these cases, students often take a variety of electives in order to see where their interests lie. 

Our program requires the completion of 12 courses and either a thesis or comprehensive exam. Students are required to take Statistics, Research Methods, and 3 core Psychology courses (see Program Requirements). Of the remaining seven electives, three must be taken within the Psychology Department, while up to four can be taken elsewhere at NYU, with advisor permission. As the largest private university in the U.S., NYU has many schools, centers, and departments, and courses from outside the Psychology Department can broaden students’ perspectives. Students select courses in consultation with M.A. Program advisors.
