Most of the students in our program majored (or minored) in psychology and attended our program directly after their undergraduate work or after working for a few years. Occasionally, however, students from very different backgrounds (e.g., different majors, different career paths, etc.) are interested in whether our program can help get them caught up in psychology to prepare them for a doctoral program in psychology. The short answer is that this can work, but we are cautious about doing this. The first concern is that our coursework is challenging, and we assume familiarity with material that would be gained in undergraduate classes. Just as importantly, you will be expected to conduct research pretty much immediately after you arrive. Thus, it is critical that you have a basic understanding of (and preferably experience in) research methodology and statistics from the time you arrive. With that said, if you can demonstrate that you can do these things (by gaining research experience in a lab, taking some undergraduate courses or the psychology GRE subject test, or just performing at a particularly high level in your previous career path), our program can provide a great way for you to gain the training in psychology that will be of use for going on to a PhD program.
