Degree: Master of Science (MS) 2022-2023

Prerequisites (12 credits)

Activity Code: BS/MS in Psychological Sciences or MS in Psychological Sciences
The MS in the Psychological Science program has two options, a BS/MS degree for undergraduate students already enrolled at UNF and a stand-alone MS degree that is open to any individual who has already obtained a bachelors degree. Applicants can apply for the accelerated BS/MS in Psychological Sciences during the Spring of their junior year (the Spring before they would begin the graduate- course sequence). Students must earn a 3.2 GPA in all major requirements to qualify for admission to the Master's degree in Psychology.

Students in the accelerated BS/MS in Psychological Sciences program will be using 10 credits from their undergraduate degree for their graduate requirements. These include: Research Design and Analysis I (PSY 6214: 3 credits); Colloquium (PSY 6937: 1 credit); Supervised Research (PSY 6910: 3 credits); Human Development (DEP 6055: 3 credits). No GRE score is required for either program. Contact the Graduate Program Director for more information about the accelerated BS/MS in the Psychological Sciences or the MS in the Psychological Sciences.
