MA in Psychology at Pace University


(dramatic music) – [Breeann] I chose
Pace because I felt like the faculty really cared
about their students here and they see you as a person and not just a number. They really become a part of your life. (dramatic music) – [Nils] The main psychology
at Pace University is a stepping stone. It provides students with the opportunity to strengthen their core
knowledge in psychology, but also it prepares
them for the job market. – [Wei] A general
psychology program provides students opportunities to
explore different areas so student would be able to decide whether they would like to continue doing research in psychology
or pursuing clinical work. – Research plays a great
role in the program. Students have the
opportunity to work in labs that focus on social psychology, on developmental psychology, on school psychology, which gives each student
the ability to tailor their experience in the program based on their own interests. – [Breeann] For my Master’s
thesis I am looking at how exercise can alleviate
post traumatic stress symptoms. Now that I have Doctor Boyraz as a mentor and we have a very close relationship, she is helping me look at the
effects of how group exercise plays an even bigger role
in eliminating stress. – [Wei] The Master program
at Pace University provide me a strong foundation to
succeed in my PhD program and pursue my dream in becoming
a psychology professor.
