About

The Psychology - Psychological Science Track from University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) provides the student with a solid foundation in psychological research. The program includes coursework in Psychological Science design, research methodology, and statistics. 

Overview

The Psychology - Psychological Science Track from University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) is primarily designed to prepare students for doctoral degrees in psychology or related fields. Consistent with this goal, a majority of our Master's students have been subsequently accepted into Ph.D. programs. 

The program is also relevant to non-traditional students who do not plan to pursue a doctoral degree but wish to become more knowledgeable about psychology and its applications to their particular interests.

What happens to our graduates?  

About half of the graduates choose to go on to doctorate programs and the other half choose to enter the work force. The percent of students who get accepted for doctoral level programs is very high. Nearly 90% of those who have applied for Ph.D. level programs have been accepted. 

Graduates have gone on to places such as University of Houston, University of Miami, Kent State University, University of Nebraska, University of Kansas, University of Missouri, Purdue University, University of Alabama, Washington University, University of Arizona, CU-Boulder, Denver University, University of Kentucky, Louisiana State University, University of Montana, Nova Southeastern University, and Pacific University. 

Nearly all of the graduates who choose not to go on to doctoral level programs are working in areas that are relevant to their degrees. However, we are NOT a licensure program and it is possible that licensure at the M.A. level will no longer be possible in the state of Colorado for graduates of our clinical program.
