The next Information Session for the Prevention Science programs will be on Friday, February 24th 2017 from 1:30-2:30 pm PDT in Hedco 240. Not able to attend in person? Please check back here for a link to attend the session online. The previous Information Session was recorded and can be accessed here.

Applications for fall 2017 enrollment will open on January 1, 2017, and will be considered on a rolling basis through May 1, 2017. This date may be extended through May 31st if we have additional availability. We will begin reviewing applications and making offers of admission in January.

We are pleased to offer a 65-credit MS degree that can be completed in two academic years.  This degree option provides a broad array of opportunities for students to develop enduring collaborations with research centers and faculty members in the College of Education toward the goal of learning scientific skills that serve our diverse communities. Students will complete a formal, empirical research paper and be well-prepared for employment in research centers and community agencies or to gain acceptance into PhD programs that require a master’s degree prior to entry.   Program timelines may be adapted with faculty guidance.
