Applying for Admission to Graduate School

While many employers value the skills developed by students who earn a bachelor’s degree with a psychology major, a graduate degree is required to become a professional psychologist or counselor, or to enter other related professions.  The JMU Psychology program is designed to provide the basic coursework required for admission to these graduate programs, however, to be a competitive candidate for graduate program admission, students should develop their graduate school application portfolio which may include courses beyond the basic coursework required for graduation.  Follow the links below for additional information.
