This page will be updated as more information becomes available. Thank you for your understanding as we work to keep our program up to date.

Metropolitan State University's Psychology Master of Arts program is focused on applied social and community health psychology. As such, the program educates students in the systematic application of psychological theories and research on social issues, institutions, and settings that influence individuals, groups, and organizations.

The program will also:

  • Give you the knowledge needed to pursue a psychology career with non-profit organizations, human service agencies, government offices, planning and research units, public policy making institutions, human resource agencies, and colleges and universities.
  • Prepare you to build and use people's strengths and competencies, rather than focusing on their pathologies and deficits.
  • Provide a theoretical orientation that requires you to examine the complex relationships among individual, family, and community well-being and the impact of the wider environment in which people live and work.
  • Prepare you for doctoral study in Social Psychology, Public Health, Community Psychology and related areas.
