General Information

The Department of Psychology offers doctorate (Ph.D.) degrees in four areas: 

We do not offer a terminal master's degree, although students earn an M.A. en route to the Ph.D. Most of our students enter with a B.A. or B.S. degree, but we do admit a few students with M.A. degrees. All of our doctoral programs involve a full-time course of study. We do not offer online degrees at this time.

For additional application information, contact Stacia Werner.
