Accelerated Bachelor's-Master's Degree in Applied Psychology (MSAP)

Incoming freshmen with a strong high school academic performance and an expressed interest in Psychology are eligible to apply for our five-year program, which leads to the completion of both a Bachelor of Science (BS) and a Master of Science in Applied Psychology (MSAP) degree in five years. Students must meet all graduate admissions criteria to be accepted into the program.

This accelerated on-campus graduate program prepares students to apply the science of human behavior to solve practical, real-world problems through a scientist-practitioner model. Students can choose a concentration in Industrial and Organizational Psychology, Community Psychology or General Applied Psychology.
