M.S. in Psychology - Criminal Concentration
The Criminal Psychology concentration is an innovative program designed to prepare individuals for doctoral study in the field of Forensic Psychology and/or professionally working under supervision as a Forensic Psychologist. Graduates of the Criminal Psychology Program may expect to work in such settings as penal facilities; family, criminal, and civil courts; or with law enforcement agencies. Responsibilities often include child custody evaluations, visitation risk assessments, competency assessments, therapy for crime victims, and ability assessment for juvenile and adult offenders.
In addition to the University requirements for admission to the Graduate School at ULM, applicants for admission to the Master of Science in Psychology degree program will meet two of the following criteria:
1. A minimum cumulative grade-point average of 2.75.
2. A minimum combined score of 900 on the GRE General Test (Verbal plus Quantitative).
3. A total of at least 1900 points based upon the formula—400 times the overall under- graduate grade-point average plus the GRE General Test score (Verbal plus Quantitative).
Applicants who fail to meet the above standards may be admitted on conditional status by the recommendation of the Committee on Admissions of the Psychology Department in concert with the Dean of the Graduate School. A majority of undergraduate prerequisite courses also must be completed prior to entry into the program.
Graduate assistantships are available to qualified students and recommended as a positive educational experience. Assistantships include tuition waivers for the completion of campus-based courses and provide monthly stipends in exchange for professionally relevant work activities within the psychology department.
Undergraduate requirements include 9 semester hours of psychology, including at least 3 semester hours of statistics or its equivalent. The student will not be allowed to take more than 12 graduate hours until all undergraduate prerequisites are completed.
Graduate Requirements (minimum of 36 graduate hours)
This Masters degree program consists of 36 semester hours of graduate study. Faculty from both the Psychology and the Criminal Justice Departments supports the Criminal Psychology Program.
