UCI’s Post-Baccalaureate Program in Psychological Science is a certificate program that combines psychology coursework with research and/or internship experience. It is designed for people who:

  • Have a bachelor’s degree (in any discipline) and
  • Are interested in a psychology-related graduate program, career development, or career change and

Those interested in a Doctoral-level or Master’s degree program in a range of areas of psychology (including clinical/counseling psychology, social/personality psychology, developmental psychology, health psychology, psychology & the law, and school psychology) or health (e.g., public health, medical school) can strengthen their graduate school applications by completing our program, which offers an individualized course of study based on each person’s qualifications and goals.  Students who have participated in our program have been accepted to a wide variety of graduate programs, including Ph.D. programs at UC Berkeley, UCLA, and the University of Pennsylvania; Psy.D. programs at Cal Lutheran, University of Indianapolis, and Yeshiva University, and Master's programs at the University of Michigan, Columbia, and University of Texas - San Antonio.
