California State University, Fresno

Greetings from the Department of Psychology, California State University, Fresno!

Our Psychology department, with 19 full-time faculty and over 80 full-time graduate students, is looking to continue to strengthen and add to our graduate pool. As a University of California Psychology campus, we know many of your outstanding undergraduate students go on to doctoral programs. However, we also suspect you have a number of other students who may not be quite ready to enter a doctoral program (less than stellar GRE scores?, lack of confidence?, lack of research experience?), or who wish to pursue a terminal master’s degree.

California State University, Fresno Department of Psychology offers excellent opportunities for such students. We have two master’s degree (M.A.) options and one educational specialist (Ed.S) degree. Our 2-year M.A. in General/Experimental Psychology is a 30-unit program that prepares students to be community college instructors, research analysts, or better prepared doctoral students. Our 2-year M.A. in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a 44-unit program, with internship, that prepares students for a career as a behavior analyst. Our 3-year 75-unit Ed.S. in School Psychology, accredited by the National Association of School Psychologists, prepares students to be school psychologists. All students are eligible to participate in the well-regarded Preparing Future Faculty program, sponsored by the Association of American Colleges and Universities.

As a special note, know that in addition to our usual opportunities, this year we are also offering a $10,000 per year 2-year stipend for a strong graduate student interested in the areas of stress (measured by salivary cortisol) and communication (between people with Alzheimer’s Disease and their marital caregivers). Dr. Amanda Mortimer has received this stipend to attract a strong and qualified General/Experimental graduate student. Additional information about that stipend can be obtained by emailing Dr. Mortimer at
