The Master's degree in Experimental Psychology prepares students for doctoral programs and research psychology positions. The program provides:
- Intensive student-initiated research training in a variety of areas of experimental psychology. - Statistical and methodological knowledge required to examine basic or applied issues and to function as a professional research psychologist. - An appreciation of the scientific basis of various fields of psychology. - One-on-one faculty mentoring of student research.
The program is designed so that students can complete the bulk of their required course work and, in conjunction with their faculty mentor, prepare a thesis proposal during their first year. Students can then complete their remaining course credits and a data-based thesis during their second year.
“CWU is located in an ideal location, its right in the middle of WA and within driving distance of any city in WA which makes it easier to take vacations. CWU has small classes with less than 30 students in each class, this encourages a close student-instructor relationship which has been very helpful to me especially during my freshman year when I was trying to get used to the way of life here. CWU offers amazing tuition prices and waivers for international students to enable them to concentrate on school and not have to worry about their financials all the time. The international community here at CWU is very supportive of international students and the advisors are always looking out for the students by exploring new ways to improve the services they already offer.”
“The things that I must enjoy from the Master in Geological Sciences is the high quality faculty and their connection with faculty from other universities around the world. The fact of being a small student group make the faculty pay you more attention, being one of their main priorities.”
