What is a Master’s in Arts in Psychology?

The Master's in Arts (MA) in Psychology

A Master's in Arts (MA) in Psychology is a Master's Degree in Arts with a major in Psychology. This is considered a professional level degree and usually takes one or two full-time school years to complete; two to four semesters or three to six quarters, depending on the program. A prior Bachelor's Degree is normally required as a prerequisite to a Master's Degree program. If the Bachelor's Degree wasn't in Psychology, then at least certain courses in Psychology are required for admission to a Psychology Masters program.
