Outstanding Psychology and Human Development majors may be invited during their senior year to enroll in two introductory level three-credit graduate Counseling or Marriage and Family Therapy classes. The six graduate credits cannot be counted toward one’s undergraduate graduation requirements but, upon being admitted to the graduate program, can be transferred into one’s graduate plan of study for either the Counseling program or the Marriage and Family Therapy program, resulting in significant financial and time savings.

Admission requirements for Accelerated B.A. to M.A.

  • Second-semester junior Psychology or Child Study major or minor
  • 3.2 GPA
  • Invitation by the Psychology Department to participate
  • Acceptance by Counseling and Applied Behavioral Studies, or Marriage and Family Therapy Department
