Graduate Studies

The Department of Psychology does not offer the M.A. degree as a terminal degree. All graduate students must be accepted into the Ph.D. program and may receive the M.A. as one step in the doctoral program.

Applicants to the graduate programs in psychology must have successfully completed a baccalaureate degree at an accredited institution, and must have successfully completed a minimum of 12 semester hours of psychology courses. Undergraduate course work should include general psychology, psychological statistics, and at least one laboratory course. Additional course work in physiological psychology, abnormal psychology, developmental psychology, and some course work in biology, physiology, and/or chemistry is preferred. In addition to Graduate School requirements, applicants must submit three letters of recommendation and statement of their reasons for pursuing a graduate degree at the University of Mississippi. Applications for admission are considered only once each year. All application materials must be received by December 1 for consideration for admission the following August.
