The department awards a M.A. degree in general psychology after completion of the thesis (and remaining curriculum requirements) for students enrolled in one of our two Ph.D. programs. UND does not offer a terminal master's degree in clinical or general experimental psychology.
The department's graduate programs are designed for residential students who are enrolled full-time (part-time students are not admitted).
The Ph.D. programs are scientifically-oriented and offer intensive training in the scholarly research and applied aspects of their areas. They are designed to produce respected scholars in the field as manifested in the generation of high quality research which is disseminated in lecturing, writing, and presentations.
We also expect students to apply scientific findings in their respective area of specialization and to integrate scientific and applied activities as a method of further enhancing the quality of each.
