For an optimal faculty/student ratio, the department generally restricts total enrollment to 12 students. Our program graduates and career trajectories after the degree are detailed below.
This track provides qualified students earning a baccalaureate degree in Psychology with graduate level training in psychological theories and methods. Students electing to pursue this option have been interested in a broad background in Psychology at the graduate level or in specific areas such as social psychology, developmental psychology, and animal behavior.
This track provides qualified students earning a baccalaureate degree in Psychology or related fields from Tulane University with graduate training in the Behavioral Health specialty area of psychology. Behavioral health is a broad term generally understood to subsume mental health, substance use disorders, and health related behaviors. The 4+1 M.S. program in Behavioral Health was developed with two goals in mind: 1) To provide students with training in basic areas in Behavioral Health, and 2) To provide students who are new to psychology or who wish to improve on their knowledge of psychology with a more in in-depth understanding of the major areas of concentration at the graduate level.
Students enrolled in the program pay reduced tuition for their year of study; tuition for the 4+1 MS program is 35% of full time graduate tuition. Students also are responsible for paying the requisite fees to the School of Science and Engineering in a timely fashion. In addition, students should note the school's published deadlines for application for degree, submission of thesis (if applicable), and degree fees. Information regarding commencement ceremonies will be posted when available. In the meantime, commencement weekend dates may be found here.
