Frequently Asked Questions

Is the program 100% online?
It depends which program you apply to. Only the Forensic Psychology concentration is offered 100% online. However, the majority of required courses for the General and Psychometric concentrations are offered in an online format.

Do I have to write a thesis?
No. The thesis option is not required, but many students planning to pursue a PhD choose to complete a thesis.

Does the program prepare me to be a counselor?
No, graduates from the psychology program are not eligible to become licensed counselors. ULM does offer a separate graduate counseling program for students interested in this career.

Are there graduate assistantships available?
A limited number of graduate assistantships are available. Contact us if you are interested in applying!
