Better pay is a key reason people put in years of weekend and late-night study. The 2014 median salary for masters coursework graduates across all fields of education is $80,000 a year, but if you're male, average annual earnings are $90,000. For women it's $75,000. "These salary figures have a lot to do with the sectors that male and female graduates find themselves in," Guthrie says, adding that it can be difficult to quantify the payoff of postgraduate study. "It can take a period of time after they complete the qualification before the benefits of increased pay and career progression fall into place."
Students looking to transfer graduate coursework from another institution will need to schedule an appointment with a faculty member to discuss specific cases. BEFORE making an appointment to review individual transcripts, prospective students should compare previous Masters coursework with the coursework required in Millersville’s program. In past cases, about 4-5 courses (12-15 credits) will transfer into the School Psychology program. Typically, these courses include Child Development/Developmental Psychology, Social Psychology, Statistics, and Biopsychology.
