Psychology Grad School for non psychology undergraduates

Question

Hi everyone, 

 

I want to ask if anyone knows about any universities in Canada or USA who will accept directly into masters in psychology for students who don't have undergraduate degree in psychology. Without doing any additional courses. 

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

Yes. It common for people to change direction between their undergrad and masters degrees. Each cohort usually has a handful of people from other backgrounds (typically a different social science or traditional science).

You just need to clarify why you're making the change, have good scores in general (GPA/GRE), and demonstrate some base knowledge of psychology somewhere. Talk to the admissions department about the specifics they would want. They may want you to take the subject GRE, just need your transcript, or just talk about it in your SOP. Psychology is overwhelmingly competitive, so make certain that you talk to the department and find out exactly what theyneed.

Thanks for your response. Do you know any universities that do not require any pre requisites courses? 

 

May I ask, what has been your experience with Psychology and why do you want a masters degree in it?
