Do I need an undergraduate degree in psychology in order to apply to be a grad student in Educational Psychology?
The answer depends on which of our four areas of study interests you. For the Counseling area of study, the most consistent undergraduate major for our students is psychology. In the other areas, however, admitted candidates may have a much wider variety of majors. For the Queries area of study, experience with statistics and research methodology in any discipline may be good preparation. A psychology degree is not required for Counseling applicants. Counseling faculty look for applicants with experience related to the degree he or she would be pursuing. Students who majored in psychology as undergrads are more likely to have gained that experience as part of their undergrad work, of course, but students from other disciplines may also qualify.
