Students Seeking Entrance into a Future Master's Program
Many students enroll in an undergraduate degree in psychology with the intent of pursuing a career as a licensed counselor or social worker. Licensure is required for these careers with an advanced degree usually necessary to become licensure-eligible. In these cases, the undergraduate degree in psychology serves as a preparatory step toward earning an advanced degree in a psychology-related field of study. CSU does not offer an advanced degree in psychology. Therefore, students considering this educational path must continue their studies at another institution upon completion of the undergraduate degree at CSU.
In order to ensure that the CSU degree program will qualify for entrance into the desired graduate program, CSU recommends consultation with any institutions in which a student may desire to transfer as well as a review of its state requirements. To determine the best option, each student is encouraged to speak with his or her Academic Advisor. Students interested in continuing into a master’s program in psychology are encouraged to take the following recommended electives: MAT 2301 – Elementary Statistics and MAT 2302 – Pre-Calculus
Upon completion of the bachelor's degree in Psychology, CSU graduates are eligible for consideration into master's programs at several institutions. View CSU's list of Psychology Articulation Partners.
