Admissions: Programs of Study


Marywood's master's degree in psychology provides students with an in-depth view of the scientific foundations and professional applications of the discipline. The curriculum serves the needs of students who wish to apply psychological principles and techniques in varied professional settings. The master's level program is also appropriate preparation for those who wish to pursue further study at the doctoral level in a more specialized area.

Two tracks are available. The general/theoretical track is intended for those students who wish to develop a broad-based understanding of psychology for varied purposes (not necessarily involving clinical applications). The clinical track is designed for students who wish to work in a mental health agency or other human services setting where they will provide a range of consultative, assessment, and therapeutic functions.
