About

The Psychological Science program of The University of Maine is offered by the Deparment of Psychology.

Overview

The goal of the Psychological Science program of The University of Maine is to prepare students for careers in teaching and research. All students are expected to demonstrate a high level of competence in one of the specialty areas listed below. Students are also expected to demonstrate competence in statistics and experimental design, and in several areas of general psychology outside their specialty area. Competence is assessed in terms of performance in courses, research projects, teaching, and a comprehensive examination. The comprehensive exam is given at the end of the second year of graduate study or at the end of the first year for students entering with a master’s degree from another university. The Department offers the following specialty areas within Psychological Sciences:

We believe that a quality graduate education involves a close working relationships between faculty and individual students. A high faculty-to-student ratio and small class size characterize our graduate programs. In addition, each student works with at least one faculty member as a means of gaining valuable teaching, research and professional experience. There are many opportunities for individualized study and experience in research directed readings, and supervised teaching. A committee, representing the student’s interests, assists in planning an appropriate graduate program for each student.
