Integrated Bachelor's/Master's Health Psychology Program

The integrated BS/MS program can help you obtain a master's degree in half the time of a traditional degree program, often just one extra year! Undergraduate psychology students admitted to this program are able to begin their graduate coursework while finishing their undergraduate degree. The five year curriculum is designed to give students a competitive edge when applying for graduate school.

Students may apply for the integrated BS/MS Health Psychology program as entering transfer students or as current University of the Sciences undergraduate students (prior to their 4th year if in a B.S. track, 5th year if in a professional masters degree track, or 6th year if in the Pharm.D. track). Students are expected to meet the following criteria for admission:

  • minimum cumulative GPA of 3.25/4.00
  • minimum SAT score of 1200 total with a minimum individual verbal and math score of 550 if you are not matriculated in an undergraduate or first professional degree program for at least one academic year (one fall and spring semester).
  • three letters of recommendation from college faculty
  • signature of the student's current University of the Sciences program director signifying that he/she has discussed the implications on how this program might impact the student's undergraduate studies

If you meet the above qualifications and would like to be considered for this program, please submit a graduate application to:
