Course content

The Experimental concentration for the psychology master's degree has the primary objective of preparing students for a Ph.D. program. However, many industries, clinical settings, and research universities are interested in students with the analytical and statistical skills of a research psychologist. Graduates with a master's degree in experimental psychology also may teach at the community college level. MTSU facilities include standard apparatus for human research, a library of many standardized psychological tests, and laboratories with one-way mirrors and videotaping equipment. The department hosts a state-of-the-art electroencephalography (EEG) lab equipped with a 128-channels EGI Geodesics System and a GPS sensor registration system for precise brain signal source localization. Computer software includes statistical software (SPSS and SAS) and software specific to the acquisition and analysis of human performance data (E Prime, Matlab). Graduate teaching and research assistantships are available.
