Prevention Science MS

Applications for Fall 2018 enrollment will open on January 1, 2018, and will be considered on a rolling basis through May 1, 2018. 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 2018.

We will be hosting a Prevention Science Information Session for prospective students on January 12th, 2018 from 12:00 - 1:00 pm (Pacific Time) in ED (Lokey) 115. We will be live-streaming and recording this session, for those who cannot attend in person. You will be able to post your questions to the panel if joining remotely.  You can access a recorded Prevention Science Information Session here, and a College of Education Research Opportunities Presentation here.


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.
