The Master of Arts (M.A.) Psychology —General/Experimental Option

The M.A. Psychology offers a choice of options in either general/experimental psychology or applied behavior analysis. Students completing the M.A. program receive a thorough grounding in psychology as an empirical science. All M.A. students are prepared in the foundations necessary to successfully enter and complete doctoral programs; students receive instruction in quantitative methods, experimental design, psychological theory, and research. Approximately half of previous M.A. program graduates have continued their studies in academic or applied doctoral programs; others work in program evaluation, administration, and community colleges.
