4+1 Masters Programs

Overview of the 4+1 Programs

The 4+1 terminal Master's Programs in Psychology provide qualified students earning a baccalaureate degree from Tulane University with graduate training in psychology. Students either may pursue the M.S. in Psychological Science or in Behavioral Health.  Thesis and non-thesis options are possible in both programs.

Note: Applications for the 4+1 program are accepted only from students pursuing a baccalaureate degree from Tulane.

Application Deadline: February 1.

Our 4+1 programs began in 2002, with a single graduate in 2003. Enrollments have increased steadily over the past four years. 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.

 

Psychological Science

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.

Behavioral Health

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.
