Master's Degree in Experimental Psychology (MS EXP PSY)

The Master's degree in Experimental Psychology prepares students for doctoral programs and research psychology positions.  The program provides:

  • Intensive student-initiated research training in a variety of areas of experimental psychology.
  • Statistical and methodological knowledge required to examine basic or applied issues and to function as a professional research psychologist.
  • An appreciation of the scientific basis of various fields of psychology.
  • One-on-one faculty mentoring of student research.

The program is designed so that students can complete the bulk of their required course work and, in conjunction with their faculty mentor, prepare a thesis proposal during their first year. Students can then complete their remaining course credits and a data-based thesis during their second year.
