Department of Psychology


Saint Joseph's University combined B.S./M.S. program in Psychology offers students an exciting and challenging curriculum of study emphasizing experimental psychology. The program, which is designed to complement the strengths and interests of the present Psychology faculty, also reflects the current state of the discipline of psychology. The program offers a traditional and academically oriented forty-eight credit curriculum which requires a qualifying comprehensive examination and an empirical thesis project (click here for a list of completed master's theses). This unique program is designed for successful completion over five academic years.

Undergraduate psychology majors at Saint Joseph's who apply for the five-year combined B.S./M.S. program will be evaluated for acceptance into the program following the completion of the first semester of the junior year. These undergraduate applicants will be asked to submit a complete undergraduate transcript, two letters of recommendation/reference, and an essay describing their interests and goals of graduate education in psychology. Acceptance into the five-year program will not affect the GER Common Courses or University Distribution Requirement.
