A Strong Foundation in Core Quantitative Concepts in Psychology
Fusing data analytics and behavioral science, Fordham's Master of Science program in applied psychological methods will prepare students to help businesses, nonprofits, educational institutions, and policy makers make more efficient decisions in line with their long-term goals.
Students will develop a strong foundation in core quantitative concepts, including psychometric theory, research methodology, and statistics. They will also explore ethical issues related to research in applied settings.
Students can choose between two tracks: Program Evaluation and Tests and Measures. Each track will offer internship opportunities that allow students to apply psychological research and statistical methods to real-world problems. Partnering organizations include the New York City Department of Education, National School Climate Center, Metis Associates (a national research firm), and ProPhase LLC (a clinical trial firm).
Graduates will be prepared for a variety of career opportunities, including monitoring productivity for multinationals, measuring advertising effectiveness and consumer behavior, designing educational testing, providing data analysis for funded research projects, and many more.
This 30-credit program can be completed in less than two years for full-time students, but also allows for part-time study.
