Admission Requirements

Applicants to the Master of Arts in Psychology must meet the following requirements for admission. This program admits for the Fall only. To ensure attention to individual growth, the number of students is limited. Most have undergraduate degrees in psychology. However, we are prepared to provide appropriate support for students with degrees in other disciplines who are now exploring psychology as career option. Applications are processed as they are received. However, we strongly encourage application by August 1 for students who wish to be considered for assistantships.
