Program Overview

Our psychology generalist program can be completed in less than two years part-time or 11 months, full-time. This master’s degree program consists of nine credit hours in foundational psychology, six credit hours in an applied research project, and the remaining 21 credit hours taken within the psychology generalist specialization track. Many individuals choose to gain broad knowledge in all areas of psychology rather than specializing in one particular area such as school psychology, or forensic psychology. Rather, psychology “generalists” study many aspects of human behavior and mental processes—such as emotion, cognition, decision making, consumer behavior, culture, personality development, social relationships, group dynamics, and normal vs. abnormal behavior. The applications for psychology are seemingly limitless and psychology experts find work in many different arenas, including human resources, public relations, advertising, market research, sales, direct care at nonprofit agencies, and management.
