Special Application Requirements/Information
Master of Arts (M.A.)
Applicants who have undergraduate degrees in fields other than psychology will be considered for admission to the M.A. program, as well as those whose previous training is in psychology.
Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)
This program accepts applications for fall semester only. GRE is required; Subject Test in Psychology is optional. Admission to the program is highly competitive. Primary emphasis in evaluating applicants is given to prior achievements and recommendations, particularly as evidence of a self-motivated research involvement.
Previous work in psychology is highly desirable but there are no fixed course requirements. Expertise in a related field, such as linguistics, philosophy, anthropology, or biology, may qualify a student as well. At least one year of full-time study in residence, i.e., two semesters of 12 or more points per semester, is required.
