The Master's in Science (MS) in Psychology

All Psychology Schools Tip: An MS in Psychology can be earned in one of several types of Psychology. The MS program will focus more on the sciences and less on the arts, or humanities, than a Master's in Arts (MA) in Psychology. If you opt for an MS in Psychology, but don't think you have time to make it to a campus, consider going online. There are a variety of psychology degrees online that let you take the same courses in the same amount of time. The MS in Psychology is regarded as more of a research, consultation and testing degree than the MA in Psychology, although employers hiring for direct service positions will often hire a person with an MS for a direct service position as quickly as one with an MA.
