Beginning in the fall 2020 semester, Tuskegee University will begin offering a new master’s degree in general psychology. Based in the university’s Department of Psychology and Sociology, the 36-hour program will prepare students to develop foundational knowledge in psychological theory, along with applied critical-thinking and research skills.
“Tuskegee’s new general psychology master’s degree is ideal for anyone who aspires to broaden his or her career opportunities in education, human services, counseling and allied health,” said Dr. Vivian Carter, who is directing the master’s program as department chair. “We want to help our students advance their understanding and use of psychological applications in their chosen fields.”
The program blends biological and social bases for applied behavior analysis with the fascinating process of human development, the history and impact psychology has had on today’s culture, and the role of ethics and diversity training in the field, according to Carter.
