No. We have admitted students who had never taken a psychology course before enrolling in the program.
Funding for the MA program is limited. Students are sometimes funded by faculty grants. We encourage students to contact our office of financial aid for awards designated for particular purposes, such as the United Methodist Fellowship and Massey Award.
Full-time students typically take three three-credit courses per semester. In addition, they are typically involved in research outside the classroom for some or all of their time in the program.
MA students often apply to our PhD programs. They are considered in the same pool as other applicants.
