Psychology is a diverse field that attracts students from a wide range of perspectives and areas of focus—from clinical, to industrial/ organizational, to social. Pace's MA in Psychology on our New York City Campus is an ideal program for students looking to gain expertise in this field, and determine how they can apply it to their current career goals, new career path, or future doctoral program. A hallmark of the MA in Psychology program is the strong sense of community amongst our students, who bring the value of their varied backgrounds and interests to the classroom. n Gain the advanced psychology skills and theory you need with foundation coursework focused on developmental psychology, neuropsychology, human learning, personality theories, research design and statistics, and social psychology. n Develop a broad range of conceptual and analytical knowledge, including a focus on ethical guidelines within the field. n Learn from our highly qualified faculty, many of whom are pioneers within their respective concentrations. Few universities offer what Pace's MA in Psychology does—a program that our graduates have used to launch or enhance their careers as mental health practitioners, psychotherapists, special education teachers, and many more. Examples of courses offered: n Psychopathology provides students with an overview of various forms of normal and deviant behavior. n Personnel Psychology introduces students to topics related to the management of human resources in organizations, including job analysis, the selection of applicants to jobs, and the performance appraisal of current workers. n Introduction to International Psychology provides insight into psychology's role in providing solutions to global problems, as well as the impact of worldwide events and forces on psychology. n The Mentored Lab Class provides valuable opportunities for hands-on, active learning experiences with individualized mentored research, which is particularly relevant to students who wish to continue their education in a doctoral program. n Human Learning introduces both basic and advanced principles and theories of condition, behavior systems, generalization and discrimination, information processing, and complex cognitive functioning.
