The Master of Applied Psychology (MAP) program from Rutgers University offers instruction in foundation knowledge of the scientific basis of psychology and education and training in applied areas of psychology. 


The Master of Applied Psychology (MAP) program from Rutgers University embraces the mission of the school by offering instruction that has an emphasis on civic and global citizenship, social justice and cultural diversity. This course of study provides students with knowledge needed to understand individual and collective behaviors; develop quantitative and qualitative statistical analysis and research design needed to analyze the corresponding physical and environmental contributors to human behavior; and a beginning understanding of the analysis and treatment of behavior problems and disorders.
