Our Master of Arts (MA) in Psychology is offered within three fields: community psychology, developmental psychology and social psychology.

In our community psychology field, you’ll gain valuable work experience as a community consultant through our practicum placement. You’ll spend 200 hours in your practicum placement learning important practical skills as you critically reflect on your practicum experience using an Action, Theory, and Research (ART) model.

In developmental and social psychology, we believe that great researchers are trained in a supportive learning environment. As soon as you start either of these program fields, you’ll begin conducting research with a faculty adviser in your first year.
