Notes/Description

  • MA degree is conferred on route to the terminal doctoral degree based on credits and completion of the MA Thesis Project.

  • This is an Experimental Psychology program. As such, it is expected that students will be engaged in research in some form in almost every term they are in our program.

  • The exact nature of this will be arranged with the faculty advisor. Students are urged to conduct research not only with their primary advisor, but with at least one other member of the Psychology Department faculty as well.

  • Each student’s program of study will be at least somewhat individualized. Thus, the specific courses a student takes and the sequence of those courses will be decided upon in careful consultation with a primary advisor (or advisors) in the student’s major area.

  • In addition to faculty in a student’s major area, all faculty within the Psychology Department should be viewed as potential resource persons available to enrich the training experience of all Experimental students.
