Program Admission Requirements

All master's degree and graduate certificate programs require you to have earned a minimum of a bachelor’s degree from an institution whose accreditation is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

In addition, the following is required for admission into this program.  All documentation must be provided prior to course registration:

  • Minimum GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale
  • An undergraduate degree in psychology or a completed bachelor's degree in another discipline with credit in the following foundational courses:
    • Introduction to psychology or general psychology: a course designed to introduce students to the broad discipline and study of psychology, its key historical and contemporary events, publications, practices, and perspectives.
    • Research methods in psychology: a course in which students learn how to develop sound laboratory and field behavioral science research protocols with human subjects.
    • Statistical methods in psychology: a course that focuses how to statistically analyze and interpret laboratory and field behavioral science research results.
      Note: One course that focuses on both statistical and research methods in psychology may be used to fulfill both of the above course requirements.
    • Human growth and development, or lifespan development: A course that examines biological, cognitive, and psychosocial milestones of the human lifespan and related normal changes and disorders. Note: completing courses covering phases of the human lifespan but not its entirety (i.e. Early Childhood Development and Adolescence and Young Adulthood), is not a substitute for this requirement.

Preadmission courses completed at the graduate level must be grade B or better.

Please read all graduate admission requirements before applying to this program and be prepared to submit the required documentation including a legible copy of your valid government-issued photo ID (civilian students) or government- issued JST or CCAF transcript (military students).
