  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months
, NJ,
This program, leading to a master’s degree in general/theoretical psychology, allows students to complete the typical B.A./M.A. course sequence in five years, rather than the usual six years of full-time study.


Students can enter the program as incoming freshmen or as students already enrolled in an undergraduate program at Fairleigh Dickinson University (or incoming transfer students). Current undergraduate students must first complete a minimum of 12 credits in psychology. Students’ academic and work experiences should reflect a strong potential for successfully completing the academic requirements of the accelerated B.A./M.A. program.
