Experimental Psychology

Delve into the intricacies of the mind.

You want to learn how we gain and store knowledge or what role perception plays in understanding our lives. You want to become immersed in how we process information or develop our ability to interact socially. The master of art in experimental psychology offers students an education in the foundation of psychological knowledge, the current state of the field, and training in research design and data analysis at an affordable cost. Students learn to ask and answer questions in the psychological sciences and have the opportunity for professional development and mentoring. Our program is ideal for students interested in research careers in government or the private sector, or in continuing thir studies at the doctoral level.

Once you understand the human mind, you can begin to impact human behavior and help people lead better lives. That’s what I want to do.
