Joint Bachelor's/Master's Degree in Psychology with Specialization in Cognitive Psychology
Statement of Purpose
The purpose of this degree program is to provide training that will prepare students either for continuing doctoral study in cognitive psychology or for technical careers involving cognitive psychology in government and industry. Students will complete the requirements for an undergraduate major in Psychology and an interdisciplinary undergraduate Certificate in Cognitive Science as well as the requirements for a masters degree in the cognitive psychology graduate training program. Because of the demanding nature of this program, only highly qualified students will be admitted to this program. The maximum number of students admitted to the program in a given year is six, limited by the course capacity available in the required courses.
The program is structured so that students will start their graduate course work in the Fall of their fourth year. Specifically, both the Graduate Statistics and Research Practicum series of courses must be taken in the fourth year of study. The masters thesis is then completed during the fifth year.
