Master of Arts in Psychology

The thesis is expected to be a report of original empirical or library research. The Master of Arts is not designed to prepare a student for a professional position. It is, rather, a step toward the Ph.D. Note that the department does not require that students obtain a master's degree, but a master's-level research report must be submitted to the department as part of the Ph.D. program.
