MSGP Program Goals

Welcome to the MSGP Program, where we prioritize your academic and professional growth through a flexible and comprehensive curriculum. Our program is designed with the following key goals and objectives:

  1. Selection of Specialty Study in Psychology. The MSGP program offers students an opportunity to explore various facets of psychology, both within and outside their initial areas of interest. We aim to assist students in discovering their passion and selecting a specific area of concentration. This focused approach serves as a solid foundation for their future applications to Ph.D. programs.
  2. Opportunity to Enhance Academic Record. For students who possess above-average academic abilities, the MSGP program offers an invaluable opportunity to strengthen their academic credentials. Through rigorous coursework and research experiences, students can showcase their capabilities and bolster their chances of acceptance into Ph.D. programs.
  3. Training to Function at the Masters Level. Our program caters to individuals seeking to develop the skills necessary to excel at the master's level in various professional domains within psychology. Whether aspiring to become psychological examiners, pursue roles in industrial/organizational settings, or engage in research endeavors, students receive comprehensive training tailored to their career aspirations.
  4. Improvement of Current Job Prospects. For some students, the MSGP program serves as a means to advance their current career outcomes. Whether you are passionate about research or not, our program has options to help students move up in their careers without engaging in their own original research.

We are committed to providing a supportive and enriching environment that empowers students to achieve their academic and professional goals. Students are not required to take a minimum number of credits each semester, so they can move through the program at their own pace. With our emphasis on flexibility, experiential learning, and individualized mentorship, we strive to equip our graduates with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in diverse career paths within the field of psychology.
