M.S. in Psychology - Psychometrics Concentration
The Master of Science in Psychology program with a concentration in Psychometrics has two goals. The first is to prepare students to work in the field of clinical psychology at the graduate level, especially in the area of psychological assessment. The second is to prepare those students who wish to obtain a doctorate in clinical psychology to succeed in that endeavor.
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 Undergraduate 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 undergraduate 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 509 (Intelligence Testing), 511 (Individual Tests), 515 (Psychopathology), 518 (Psychological Assessment), 522 (Quantitative Methods in the Behavioral Sciences), 523 (Research Methods), 534 (Theories of Learning), 552 (Behavior Modification), 561 (Neuropsychology), 571 (Basic Psychotherapy), and 599 (Thesis).
Also, students in the program must successfully pass a comprehensive examination. This examination is a 2-day process and covers each course that the student has taken toward completion of the program.
