Applying to Ph.D programs with a master's in psychology

Recommended Posts

Is it OK to apply to a communication Ph.D program in U.S. or Canada  with a master's in psychology or any other non-communication degrees?

I have a B.S. in Psychology and will be starting a Communication PhD in the Fall, so it is definitely okay to apply!

Thanks! I did have a first-author manuscript under review at the time that I was applying, but I think what helped was my research experience, CV, essays, LORs, etc. Also, none of the programs that I applied to required applicants to have a Master's degree.

@goldenxpenguins Glad to hear that !

How did you manage to get into a PhD program without a master's degree? did you have any publication?

Some graduate programs in the US don't require you to have a master's degree. There are "straight"-to-PhD programs where you get your MA on your second year after completing your thesis, then continue with the PhD program afterwards with the completion of additional courses and of course dissertation.
