Psychology General Masters Program

The Psychology Master's Program at The City College of New York provides a solid broad-based graduate education in general psychology. Students acquire knowledge in research methods and basic topics in psychology. Our Master's Program is designed for students who need to enhance their background and credentials in psychology either for the job market, or to advantage themselves in applying to doctoral programs. Some students in our program are participating in our B.A./M.A. program, which allows them to obtain a B.A. or B.S. degree and the M.A. degree concurrently. Master's courses are usually conducted as seminars, consisting of 15-25 students. After their first semester, students may take up to 40% of their coursework at other CUNY branches, including doctoral courses offered through the Graduate Center.
