About this course
This rigorous, research-based Liberal Arts program leading to a Master of Arts degree is designed to develop creative problem-solving skills which will be applicable in clinical, industrial, and educational settings. Flexible enough to be completed either on a full-time or a part-time basis, it is appropriate for a wide range of candidates. For those potential doctoral candidates who cannot enter a Ph.D. or Psy.D. program at the present time, it provides a basis for later acceptance.
For those who are already working in clinical, educational, or industrial settings, it offers updating credentials. The program provides ideal training for those wishing to explore their personal interest in obtaining employment in settings related to psychology.
Teachers in secondary schools may use the program to prepare themselves to teach psychology in addition to their current certification. While this program is not a clinical or counseling training program and does not lead to licensure, some courses are relevant to clinical psychology.
Emphasis is placed on faculty advisement to help in tailoring the program to the needs of the individual student.

- 18 hours of psychology (graduate or undergraduate), including at least one course in statistics and at least one course in experimental psychology;
