The Master of Science in Psychology is a broad-based, general degree in psychology. The curriculum provides a comprehensive, global understanding of human behavior and focuses on a wide range of psychological theories and practice. In addition to exposing students to general psychology in such courses as social, developmental, and physiological psychology, this program focuses on practical skills related to data analysis, research and teaching.
