3 BASIC INFORMATION Overview and Timeline The Accelerated Master s Program (AMP) in Psychological Science is a program designed for advanced University of Arizona undergraduate students majoring in psychology to complete both the Bachelor of Science (BS) or Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree as well as the Master of Arts (MA) degree in a total of five years (four years for the BA or BS degree and one year immediately following for the MA degree). Reasons to pursue the AMP in Psychology The AMP is for students who wish to gain research training and experience to make them competitive and better prepared to succeed in a research-oriented psychology doctorate (PhD) program. It can also help students decide if a career in research is right for them before applying to medical school (MD) or other PhD programs or for students who desire research training and experience for a future career options such as in: Private Industry (pharmaceutical companies, market research agencies) Government agencies (federal or state grant agencies; juvenile, civil and criminal courts) Research Organizations or Program Evaluation Organizations Nonprofit Research Foundations or Nonprofit Businesses Science Journalism The AMP is not designed for students who wish to obtain the MA degree to become licensed therapists. This program neither includes the classes nor the practicum placements necessary to become a licensed practitioner. The AMP does not ensure acceptance into the PhD program at the University of Arizona, Department of Psychology. It may be helpful in gaining the training and credentials necessary to apply to PhD programs in general, including the University of Arizona; however, upon application to the PhD program the AMP student will be assessed along with all other applicants. Application Process We encourage students who are interested in the AMP to apply as soon as possible during the Spring of their Junior year in the psychology major. Applications are generally open from January 1 through February 28 th. If accepted into the program, the student will then apply to the Graduate College, which includes filling out a Graduate College on-line application for the Psychology AMP and paying an application fee. After acceptance to the AMP, students register to take a combination of undergraduate and graduate psychology courses during the fourth year of their BA or BS degree. During this time, students complete both undergraduate and graduate psychology courses (see details below), and begins working with a faculty research advisor to develop a research project that will constitute their Master s Report. In the fifth year, students take graduate coursework and complete their empirically-based research Report in order to fulfill the coursework and research requirements for the Master s degree. Department of Psychology Eligibility Criteria for AMP To be considered eligible to apply for the AMP in Psychological Science, students must meet the following criteria: 1. Demonstrate a clear interest in research. 2. Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.3 (closer to preferable 3.5). 3. Have a minimum of one semester of research experience at the time of application to the AMP, and/or be involved currently in research. Page 3

4 Additional University of Arizona Eligibility Criteria for AMP 1. Completion of a minimum of 75 undergraduate credit hours will be required at the time of application; a minimum of 90 undergraduate credit hours will be required at the time of entry into the AMP. If the student s GPA falls below 3.3 at the time they have completed 90 units, the student will not be admitted into the program. Courses taken for audit may not be included in the total number of units counted for eligibility or admission. 2. A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.3 on a minimum of 12 units of undergraduate UA. 3. Completion of at least 12 earned undergraduate credits in their major at The University of Arizona s main campus. Units still graded Incomplete, units graded Pass/Fail or units taken as audit will not count toward the requirement of the 12 undergraduate units. 4. Completion or near completion of general education requirements. 5. Submission of a graduate application and payment of a graduate application fee. 6. Demonstration of the maturity necessary for success in an accelerated, highly competitive program. 7. Expectation to complete the undergraduate degree within four years. The undergraduate degree requirements must be completed before the student is eligible to have the Master s degree awarded. 8. A minimum GPA of 3.0 at BS/BA graduation to continue in the program. Please remember, however, that the Psychology Department requires a 3.3 to continue in the AMP program after graduation from your BS/BA. Honors Students Honors students are welcome to apply to the AMP in Psychology. Since Honors students are currently required to complete a Report for graduation, the AMP is a good fit for honors students who may wish to continue refining or extending their undergraduate thesis research. Honors students are welcome to continue working with the same faculty research advisor for their Master s Report or change research advisors and work on a project that is different from their Honors thesis. Honors students will complete both an undergraduate thesis as well as a Master s Report in this program. Capstone Research/Graduate Prep Course For students not in the Honors College, you must register for a Senior Capstone undergraduate thesis project (Psy498, 3 credits; Fall or Spring your Senior year), where you will work on a research project with a faculty research advisor during your senior year. The Capstone will provide you with research and writing experience and will be helpful in successfully completing the Master s Report requirement. This course does not count toward the 30 graduate credits. You are strongly encouraged to take Psy 396C Preparation for Graduate Programs in the Field of Psychology. This class provides important information to you and assists you in preparing materials to apply to graduate school. Research and the AMP Research training and experience is a central focus of the AMP. Students can obtain this experience in a number of ways. One method for obtaining research experience in the AMP is for the research that a student conducts during his or her time as an undergraduate to serve as a foundation upon which the Master s Report will be built. The student s undergraduate faculty research advisor (in freshman, sophomore or junior years) would then continue as the student s graduate faculty research advisor, and the student s Report could be a culmination of the research that the student has done throughout his or her time as an undergraduate and graduate student. If students opt to select a different faculty research advisor for the AMP than the one they worked with in the first years of their undergraduate program, the student must do so before applying to the program. Regardless of the method chosen to gain research training and experience, at the time of the application a faculty research advisor must be selected. Page 4

5 Travel Funds for Conferences In the first year, students can apply to the Department of Psychology, Business Office, for travel funds to attend a professional conference ($300). The student will need to submit to the Business Office the brochure for the conference to obtain pre-approval for the expenses. After attending present receipts to be reimbursed (hotel, airfare, mileage, etc.). The charges must be made on credit cards in your name for you to obtain the reimbursement. In the second year, if students present a poster/paper at a professional conference, they can apply for additional travel funds ($300) to present their work. The Summer Research Institute (SRI) Explore if SRI would be helpful. It offers you an opportunity to learn how to conduct research, enjoy your summer, and prepare for graduate studies at the UA. The program is sponsored by the UA. The purpose of SRI is: To provide you with the opportunity to work with faculty on a research project. To give you an understanding of the approaches, issues, and research methodologies in your chosen field. To encourage you to consider advanced study in the discipline of your choice at the University of Arizona. To prepare you to be competitive in the graduate application process and beyond. To enhance leadership skills through personal development workshops and interaction with peers. Writing Skills Improvement Program There is a Writing Skills Improvement Program here at the U of AZ. It is a tremendous resource for students who want additional assistance in writing. Because you will need to produce both an Honor s Thesis/Capstone Project and a Master s Report, you will need to feel comfortable and competent doing a lot of it. The website is: Workshops include: Getting Started: The Process of Writing and Overcoming Writer's Block; The Basics of Writing a Strong, Clear Essay; Step-by Step Through the Master's Thesis or Dissertation; Topic Choice and Effective Research: The Thesis, and General Planning. Also offered through this program and the Graduate College is a Graduate Writing Institute some information is also offered here This is a 3 week, 3 hours per day, 3 days per week program. It comes with private tutoring sessions. You must apply and be accepted so check application deadlines (February??). It would be most helpful at the end of the first year in the AMP when you have your proposal completed and you are beginning to work on your Master s Report. CURRICULUM The AMP permits students to apply 6-12 units of 500-level course work towards both the Bachelor s and Master s degrees. The AMP requires that students complete the following: A minimum of 30 graduate credits, with at least 18 regularly graded units of course work, must be completed with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.3 in order for a student to be granted the Master s degree. The graduate credits will include: 19 required credits: o PSY510 Introduction to Graduate Statistics (3 credits) taken in the Fall Senior (4 th ) Year o PSY507A Statistical Methods in Psychological Research (3 credits) taken in the Fall Master s (5 th ) Year o PSY599 Independent Study (1 unit each semester; total 4 units) with Dr. Beck, graded, colloquium attendance and reaction papers o PSY599 Independent Study (3 units) o PSY909 Master s Report (6 credits total; 3 credits across two semesters) 9 units of graduate-level elective course work. All Psychology Department graduate courses are available to AMP students. There are some courses offered in the Clinical Program which have a practicum component (621 & 625A). Students will NOT be allowed to take the practicum component but can take the lecture portion with the permission of the instructor. The 696 series are NOT available to AMP students. Page 5

6 3 additional credits to be taken either as course work or independent study (does not include the capstone class). A maximum of 6 credits can be taken in courses outside the department of psychology if they are relevant to the student s research and with the permission of their faculty advisor (for example, courses in Family Studies, Linguistics, and Cognitive Neuroscience.) Independent Study (PSY599 1 credit) with Dr. Beck each semester. This independent study entails attending five academic colloquiums per semester starting in their Fall Senior (4 th ) Year and continuing through the graduate year, reading an article by each speaker, drafting reaction papers and presenting on talks attended at AMP meetings. If students are attending an academic conference, the student can use one key note speaker talk or presentation by a university-based academic (no round table or panel discussions) per conference for a colloquium. Students can also use one talk presented at various psychology department program Brown Bag series or use a talk at the law school by a lawyer. The paper for the practicing lawyer can be one published opinion by a court wherein the lawyer represented one of the parties. See Independent Study form for specific requirements. Present your Master s research at a joint AMP/MA Research Forum at the end of the spring semester (Year 2). Draft Master s Report and submit it to your Committee for approval. It must be approved before the end of your Spring Semester Year 2. THE FIRST YEAR OF THE ACCELERATED MASTER S PROGRAM AMP students will meet with the AMP Director as soon as possible upon acceptance to the program in order to review the steps needed to make progress successfully through the program. AMP students must attend the department s new graduate student orientation workshops. The AMP Coordinator will the AMP students with the dates and times of the orientation workshops. The student s next priority is to meet with their faculty research advisor and begin to develop the AMP research project that will be the focus of their Master s Report. The faculty research advisor will also assist the student in selecting appropriate courses. Registering For 500-Level Courses as an Undergraduate Before AMP students have completed their BA or BS degree, they should register for 500-level courses. Students will have to complete the 500-Level Course Request Form for Undergraduate Enrollment in Graduate Courses in order to enroll in these courses and get that form approved by the Graduate College. Senior Degree Check During the first semester of the senior year, AMP students, like regular Psychology Department undergraduate students, should schedule an appointment with an Undergraduate Advisor to complete their official Senior Degree Check. This ensures that students have everything in line to graduate with the BA or BS degree as planned. The degree check consists simply of a 30-minute meeting with an advisor. Draft Plan of Study During the first semester of the senior year, students should draft an AMP Plan of study. The Plan of Study is essentially a list of graduate courses that a student has taken or is planning to take to complete the AMP degree. Only graduate courses should be included in this document. Each student should then meet with the AMP Director to discuss it. Page 6

7 During the first semester of the second year, this plan of study will need to be formally approved, including courses that the faculty research advisor has approved for elective course work. Once this is finalized, it should be submitted to the AMP Director for approval. Page 7

8 Creating a Master s Report Committee & Submitting Proposal At the end of the student s last year as an undergraduate (first year in AMP), the student should have the Master s Report proposal ready to submit. In so doing they will need to select their Master s Report Committee, which consists of their faculty research advisor and one other faculty reader. See attached forms which must be completed. The faculty research advisor must be a tenure-track University of Arizona faculty member in the Department of Psychology (faculty members who hold the title of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor), and be a CORE faculty member of the Department of Psychology (as opposed to Affiliated, Adjunct, Emeritus, Research, Lecturer or Visiting Faculty). The faculty reader may be from one of the categories listed, or a faculty member from another department. If you have any questions, please discuss your possible choices of a faculty research member with the AMP Director. The primary research advisor will serve as a student s Master s Report Committee Chair. To create a committee, students should first approach the faculty research advisor for suggestions for an appropriate reader. Students can then approach the professor and ask if she/he would be willing to serve as their faculty reader. In order for the student to be able to complete the research and draft the Master s Report in a timely manner, the Master s Report proposal should be submitted to and approved by the faculty research advisor before being sent to the faculty reader. This process should be completed in the last semester of the student s first year in the program or absolutely no later than September 30th of the student s fall semester of the second year. The student and the Master s Report Committee can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to hold a formal proposal meeting or instead approve the written proposal without a meeting. The Master s Report proposal should be 5-10 pages in length and include a short literature review on the topic, research question[s] and/or hypotheses, methods (participants, instruments, etc.), variables of interest, and the data analysis plan. Once the Master s Report proposal is accepted, students should obtain the necessary signatures on the Master s Proposal. Annual AMP Student Progress Report/Evaluation Letter In May, at the end of the student s first year in the AMP (senior year) (August for 2013 students only), the student will complete an Annual AMP Student Progress Report using the online system (check with Beth Owens for the weblink). The progress report will document academic progress, publications and conference presentations, awards and grants, and other achievements during the previous year. The report provides students with an opportunity to outline their goals for the coming year and their overall plan for completion of the AMP. Once the student has submitted the document online, it will be reviewed by their research advisor who will include comments on their progress to date, achievements of note, or concerns they have regarding academic progress. These comments will then be forwarded to the AMP Director who will review the annual report and draft an evaluation letter based on the comments of the research advisor and following the guidelines set out in the Evaluation and Retention Policy, as described below. The letter will then be forwarded to the Director of Graduate Studies and the Head of Psychology for approval. The completed evaluation letter will be sent to the AMP student for review. Students should meet with their research advisors to discuss any concerns they have regarding the letter. Evaluation and Retention Policy At the end of the first year in the AMP (senior year), in order to remain in good academic standing, students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher. If a student s cumulative GPA falls below 3.3, then the student will be placed on provisional status. If in the following semester, the student is not able to regain a 3.3 or higher GPA, they will Page 8

9 be converted to non-degree seeking status by The University of Arizona Graduate College. Students would not be eligible to reapply to the AMP program. The AMP must be completed within one academic year after completion of the BA/BS. The Evaluation Letter. The evaluation letter should include several key points: The letter should note the student s productivity and achievements, including program milestones such as completing the BA/BS, completing the Capstone Project/Honor s Thesis, publications and presentations of their work at professional conferences, and other academic achievements. The letter will state where the student is in their training schedule as outlined in the AMP handbook. Students are either (a) ahead of schedule, (b) right on track, or (c) behind schedule. For students who are on track in the program, the letter will note what the expectations are for the coming year including expected dates of completion for upcoming milestones (Master s Report, presentation of Master s Report). If a student is behind schedule, the advisor should note any special circumstances that may have led to the delay in completing the milestones. When the student is behind schedule in their progress, a warning may appear in the evaluation letter: Warning Provisional Status: When a student is behind schedule, the letter will encourage the students to get focused and work with their research advisor closely to stay on track and develop a plan to accomplish the needed milestones by the end of the Summer (year). Students should be warned that failure to progress through the AMP in a timely manner will result in being dismissed from the AMP and the Department of Psychology. The evaluation letter will state that: Given that you did not meet all of the requirements outlined in your evaluation letter, you have been placed on provisional status within the Department of Psychology effective immediately. We encourage you to develop a plan with your advisor so that you meet all the program requirements listed below by the end of Summer (year). While on provisional status, you remain eligible to take courses with the same priority as other students in your year, but you must focus on meeting the departmental milestones outlined below. Failure to do so may result in you being dismissed from the Psychology Department Graduate Program for lack of adequate academic progress and converted to non-degree seeking status, as per Graduate College Guidelines. The evaluation letter should outline the specific requirements with expected completion dates required in order for the student to be removed from provisional status. A student who believes, with good academic reason, that they deserve redress or exception to this decision, they can formally petition for an exception. A petition form must be submitted to the Graduate College Degree Certification Office explaining all relevant facts. Such petitions must be accompanied by supporting documents and a letter of support from the student's research advisor, AMP Director, Director of Graduate Studies, or Department Head and required signatures. Petition forms are available from the Graduate College website. Page 9

10 THE SECOND YEAR OF THE ACCELERATED MASTER S PROGRAM Registering for Graduate Courses as a Graduate Student AMP students who have successfully completed their Bachelor s degree may register for graduate courses through UACCESS. Funding for Second Year At present we are not able to offer any funding in the form of research assistantships or teaching assistantships to cover tuition or salaries for our AMP students second year. Tuition and expenses must be covered by the students. You can, of course, apply for scholarships and student loans to cover these costs. UAccess has scholarships available (see Beth Owens). As of Fall 2013, the regular tuition & fees per semester for RESIDENT graduate students taking seven or more units is $5, (non-resident taking nine or more units is $13, per semester). The tuition and fees often go up each year so please check at the Bursar s Office for the year you are interested in applying: Look on the left side of the website under Student Services, Tuition and Fees Calculator. Submitting the Plan of Study During the first semester of the second year, this plan will need to be formally approved, including courses the faculty research advisor has approved for elective course work. To complete the Plan of Study you will use UAccess GradPath: Please note: the Responsible Conduct of Research Statement must be done first before you can access the Plan of Study (PSYCMA). Once you fill out your plan of study and submit it, this website will send an to your AMP coordinator to do a preapproval. It then moves on to your research advisor. Once your research advisor approves it, the document goes on to the Graduate College for final approval. The Master s Report, Degree Conferral, Presentation of Master s Work As students approach the conclusion of their AMP, students should meet with their faculty research advisor to discuss the completion of the Master s Report. Once the Master s Report has been completed and a final draft has been approved by the research advisor, the draft should be submitted to the faculty reader who will then approve the document. Once approved by the faculty research advisor and the reader, students will again go into GradPath to complete the Master's/Specialist Committee Appointment Form (PSYCMA). This will go through the same approval process as the Plan of Study. The student should submit this in GradPath no later than the end of finals week. The Graduate College will verify the completion of all course work and requirements, and finally confer the Master s degree. All second year students will present their masters research at a joint MA/AMP research forum held toward the end of the spring semester (late April or early May). Students can elect to present their project as a poster or an oral presentation. Graduation Students are welcome to participate in the College of Science Commencement Ceremony and/or The University of Arizona Commencement Ceremony. Students will be sent information directly from the Dean s Office regarding the College of Science Commencement; students may find information on the University commencement at Degree and Tuition Policies Students will be considered undergraduates until they complete their undergraduate requirements, which should be no later than the end of the fourth year. Students entering with Advanced Placement Credit or who attend summer school Page 10

11 would likely graduate with their Bachelor s in the 3rd year. Students must take at least 12 of their graduate credits while in graduate status. In other words, During years 1-3 (or approximately 0-90 credits) students will be taking undergraduate coursework and charged at the undergraduate rate. Once admitted to AMP, during the senior (or transition year), they may take up to 12 units of graduate coursework which may apply toward both the Bachelor s and the Master s degrees. Students will be charged at the undergraduate rate and retain eligibility for undergraduate scholarships. Students classified as seniors who have not yet completed a bachelor's degree may enroll in 500-level courses following the Graduate Credit for Seniors Policy. Courses numbered at the 600, 700 and 900 levels are not open to undergraduates. After completion of all Bachelors requirements, students will be granted graduate status, be charged at the graduate rate. The student will not be eligible to graduate until all Bachelors requirements are completed. While an undergraduate, students are required to keep their graduate coursework cumulative GPA at 3.3 or higher to be admitted to the AMP. Should a student have completed 12 graduate credits, but not yet completed the undergraduate degree, they will be considered graduate for financial aid and tuition purposes and coded as graduate in UAccess. They will no longer be eligible for undergraduate scholarships. At least 12 graduate credits must be taken while in graduate status, after completing all degree requirements for the Bachelor s. Students should be encouraged to complete their undergraduate requirements as soon as possible, but not later than one semester before receiving their master s. Students finishing their undergraduate requirements later than one semester before receiving their master s they will no longer be eligible for undergraduate scholarships. Nor will they be eligible for graduate assistantships. Neither degree will be awarded until the undergraduate requirements are completed along with the Master s requirements. Page 11
