Master of Science in Prevention Science

The prevention science major leads to a master of science (MS) or master of education (MEd) degree.
The two-year MS degree in prevention science is intended for students who have completed a bachelor’s degree in a prevention science–related discipline or have human development, psychology, education, or prevention science experience, and an interest in advanced training in statistics-methodology and research beyond what is offered in the one-year MEd program. Students applying to the MS are likely to have clearly defined academic goals and seek more in-depth scientific and methodological training in prevention science and program evaluation. This masters’ degree option provides greater opportunities for students to develop long-term collaborations in research centers and with faculty members in the College of Education, but does not require the commitment involved in completing the PhD.
