Master of Science in Psychology: Research Concentration 

The Master of Psychology: Research Concentration prepares students for careers in research and teaching. Using a mentoring model in which each student works closely with a faculty sponsor, we allow the student to gain experience relevant to pursuing a career in psychology.

This is accomplished by addressing three specific goals.  First, we prepare students with research skills that enable them to assist in the design and analysis of behavioral data.  Second, we allow students to work in a collaborative fashion with experienced research scientists to gain first-hand knowledge of the demands of research. This task is often accomplished through service learning activities connecting the student with projects in the community. Third, we teach our students to teach others, and provide them with opportunities to gain supervised experience conducting classes in the Department of Psychology, including laboratory supervision through teaching a self-contained undergraduate course.
