Experimental Research M.A. Program

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Our two-year graduate program in Experimental Research awards a Masters of Arts degree. This program provides students with a solid foundation in scientific research, through a combination of mentored laboratory experience and complementary coursework. There are six core faculty members in the program, providing the opportunity to gain expertise in cognitive, social, and/or neuroscientific approaches to experimental psychological research. Training will culminate in the proposal and defense of a thesis research project, with the goal of publishing results. Our program leaves graduates strongly prepared for further doctoral training and/or careers in academia, biomedical research, business, or clinical practice (see Alumni section for testimonials).
