Graduate programs in Psychological Sciences provide professional training leading to the master of science degree. Master's programs are offered in four broad areas: (1) animal learning/physiological psychology (with concentrations in animal learning/behavior or physiological psychology/behavioral neuroscience) (2) cognitive and human factors psychology (with concentrations in psycholinguistics, judgment and decision making, human factors/engineering psychology, or sensation and perception) (3) social-personality (with concentrations in social, personality, or developmental psychology) (4) industrial/ organizational (with concentrations in human-resources/personnel issues and procedures, organizational behavior and theory).

At the master's level, students may specialize in any of the traditional areas. The first year of the Master's program is spent primarily in basic courses. Graduate students will also complete a first-year research project (see below). During the second year, students begin to satisfy related requirements, complete work on their master's thesis, and begin to develop a major area of professional interest.

Courses include:

Statistics Courses: * Quantitative Methods in Psychology
* Experimental Design in Psychology
* Seminar in Psychological Measurement

Core Courses: * History of Current Trends
* Physiological Psychology
* Learning
* Perception
* Advanced Cognitive Psychology
* Personality Theory and Research
