M.S. in Psychology - Experimental Concentration
The goal of the Master of Science in Psychology program with a concentration in Experimental Psychology is to place our students in competitive doctoral programs once they complete their studies. In addition, as a result of two years of intensive research training, hopefully, our students will obtain maximum funding at the doctoral institution of their choice.
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)
PSYC 502 (Social Cognition), 509 (Intelligence Testing), 522 (Quantitative Methods in the Behavioral Sciences), 523 (Research Methods), 534 (Theories of Learning), 552 (Behavior Modification), 561 (Neuropsychology), 599 (Thesis), and 9 hours of electives.
Also, students in the program must successfully pass a comprehensive examination. This examination is a 2-day process and covers courses that the student has taken toward completion of the program.
We look forward to discussing this degree opportunity with you. Please contact the Psychology Office at (318) 342-1330 or email email@example.com.
