MS in Research Psychology & Data Analysis

Program Mission

The mission of the M.S. in Research Psychology and Data Analysis program is to cultivate difference makers with advanced skills in research methodologies and data analysis who harness their knowledge, values, and skills to help their communities thrive through psychological science and data-driven decision making.

Program Description

This program offers students a scientist-practitioner thesis model, which consists of a rigorous curriculum that is completed over a 1-2 year period. The program consists of 36 units (12 courses) offered during Fall, Spring, Summer 1, and Summer 2 terms.

The courses are lectures and seminars, as well as hands-on research lab and certification courses. A faculty advisor works closely with students to provide guidance on a research thesis, applying to doctoral programs (writing personal statements and obtaining recommendation letters), and applying for jobs. In addition, students have the opportunity to participate in other professional events, including academic conferences and career fairs.

This program trains students to become:

  • Scholars who bring together theory, research, statistics, and a concern for helping people.

  • Difference makers who are capable of communicating and implementing data-driven decisions that positively impact people’s lives.

  • Researchers who are competent in conducting advanced research projects that develop theoretical perspectives, address knowledge gaps, and further the field of psychology and related fields.

  • Ethical leaders who conduct themselves with integrity and a commitment to justice in their academic, organizational, business, and applied settings.

  • Deeply informed in regards to how to integrate the discipline of psychology with the Christian faith.
