Fort Wayne, Ind. (July 16, 2014) — Indiana Tech will begin offering an online master’s degree in psychology this fall, with the first course beginning on Sept. 7.
The Master of Science in Psychology is designed for individuals who are looking for career advancement in fields that draw on psychology principles and research, as well as those who wish to ultimately pursue doctoral degrees in related fields.
The program will provide students with the opportunity to develop the skills needed to utilize psychological principles in various employment settings such as business, mental health/social service agencies, medical hospitals, human service organizations, the criminal justice system including police work and corrections, and teaching at institutions of higher education.
“We’ve offered a bachelor’s degree in psychology for several years, but we found that many people really wanted the more advanced knowledge and skills of the master’s degree,” said Steve Herendeen, vice president of enrollment management. “We’re very excited to provide this degree program, because we know it meets the needs of our prospective students.”
