Master of Science in Behavioral Sciences

Option in General Psychology

The Master of Science in Behavioral Sciences (MSBS) program is designed to serve that segment of the population employed in or interested in a broad spectrum of professions in the behavioral sciences. The MSBS: General Psychology option is designed to meet the needs of students who do not wish to pursue a career in counseling. Students who want to increase their understanding of human behavior, who are interested in experimental psychology, and who wish to pursue a Ph.D. in experimental psychology should choose this option. In addition to the 21 credit-hour core, MSBS: General Psychology students will complete 12 additional credit-hours. The goal of the MSBS program is to develop the knowledge base and professional competencies of individuals interested in professions in the behavioral sciences, and to assist in promoting the economic development of Southwest Oklahoma. Current student learning outcomes for the MSBS program are listed on the Cameron University transparency webpage.
