Psychology Graduate Admissions

GRE Information


There are 4 fields of study within the Master's and Doctoral Programs in Psychology.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply to one field of study only.

Please note that admission to one does not preclude conducting research with faculty members affiliated with another. 

IF you are considering two fields of study we would ask that you contact the Faculty Admission Representatives of each before applying to discus your research intent in order to decide the "best fit for YOU".
