Admissions

Double Dawg pathways are structured so you first move through your core and major undergraduate courses in about three years. Because undergraduates may share up to 12 graduate-level courses with their undergraduate program of study, your master's degree coursework begins when you are still an undergraduate. After completing your bachelor's degree coursework and requirements for the UGA Graduate School, you become a master's student.

The HOPE and Zell Miller Scholarships allow a maximum of 127 attempted or paid hours, whichever is reached first, for students who have not completed a bachelor's degree. This can be used to cover tuition for both undergraduate and graduate coursework. HOPE and Zell Miller scholarships will only pay tuition at the lower rate, whether it is the graduate or undergraduate rate. Once a student meets the requirements for graduation from the undergraduate program, they are no longer eligible for the HOPE or Zell Miller scholarships.

All specializations for the MA in Educational Psychology require GRE scores as well as the following documents:

  • Current resume/CV
  • Statement of Purpose
  • Three letters of recommendation

Your three letters of recommendation should be from individuals who can evaluate your scholarly ability and potential for success in a graduate program. Preferably, at least two of the three letters will be from faculty who have instructed the applicant in a previous program of study.

Admission to any specialization depends on factors including research interests, test scores and availability of an appropriate advisor. Only students who are considered possible future candidates for the doctoral program are recommended for admission to the master of arts program.
