O que eu aprenderei?

The Department of Psychology offers a program leading to the Master of Arts in psychology. The specific goals of the programs are to emphasize the scientific methods and principles common to all fields of psychology. Within the program there are three separate concentrations:

  • A psychological science concentration with a major goal to prepare students for entry into doctoral programs in applied or experimental psychology;
  • An applied behavior analysis concentration. The purpose of this clinical concentration is to help prepare students for the North Carolina Psychological Associate Licensure Examination and examination for certification as a behavior analyst by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board, Inc.
  • A co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders concentration. The purpose of this clinical concentration is to help prepare students for the North Carolina Psychological Associate Licensure Examination and the North Carolina Clinical Addictions Specialist Licensure.

Available Concentrations

  • Applied Behavior Analysis
  • Psychological Science
  • Co-Occurring Substance Use & Mental Health (Currently not accepting applications)

(May only apply to one concentration per year)

Degree Requirements

  • The psychological science concentration will require a minimum of 34 credit hours; and the applied behavior analysis concentration will require a minimum of 52 credit hours; the co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders concentration will require a minimum of 52 credit hours.
  • Courses open only to graduate students: All students will take at least 34 credit hours of coursework open only to graduate students.
  • Students must maintain a “B” average in all graduate courses taken. A student ineligible to continue because of poor grades, based upon special circumstances, may petition the Graduate School for reinstatement. A petition for reinstatement must be accompanied by statements of endorsement or non-endorsement from both the department chairperson and the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. A student so reinstated will be dismissed if any additional grade below that of “B” is earned.
  • A minimum of 26 credit hours of graduate study must be completed in residence.
  • A faculty committee composed of a chairman and at least two other members of the Graduate Faculty will be established for each student within the first two semesters in residence. One committee member may be from outside the field of concentration. This committee will oversee the student’s thesis and program of study.
  • A comprehensive written examination must be successfully completed. This is usually done during the semester in which the student is enrolled in final course work.
  • The student will present and defend a thesis which is acceptable to the faculty committee prior to graduation.
  • Each student must complete an approved course of study within five years of the date of the first registration for graduate study to be eligible for graduation.
