Online Master of Science Program in Applied Psychology 


Shippensburg University is located in south central Pennsylvania and our graduate program began in 1981, although now the M.S. in Applied Psychology is 100% online (asynchronous) and can be completed in 1 year of full-time study or 2 years on a part-time basis.

The program emphasizes the application of psychological principles and methodologies to real-world problems.  The majority of our graduates enter fields where they assume research-related roles (e.g., program evaluation, survey researcher, data analyst, quality control specialist, etc.) across a variety of sectors in business/industry, government, and non-profit settings.  In addition, there are two specialties that students can pursue; they have the option of pursuing a Six Sigma blackbelt certification if they have specific interests in quality control careers, or they can earn a Behavior Specialist Certificate which provides advanced coursework in applied behavioral analysis for those interested in working with individuals with learning, social, or developmental impairments (e.g., autism). 

Remote assistantships are available on a competitive basis, although contingent on university funding.  Students interested in our program can visit the following link for detailed information:

What is Compeer?

Compeer is an international friendship and mentorship program for individuals managing mental illness. At Far West Center, a nonprofit mental health agency on the St. John campus in Westlake, we host an adult and youth program. You can learn about the history of Compeer, as well as see where other programs exist in the country, on their website:

Because our members already receive mental health services through Far West providers, we do not focus on symptoms in Compeer as much as we focus on strengths and socialization. The program consists of group activities (currently limited due to Covid but there used to be a LOT going on), individual support with me (certified peer support specialist), and member-volunteer matches.

What do volunteers do?

While we provide training, we do not expect volunteers to be mental health experts. The point of the program is to get people out of isolation and embrace the power of friendship. We ask that volunteers communicate with their match at least 4 hours per month; this can be achieved via phone calls, Zoom, or in-person meetups. Some possible activities include seeing a movie, walking in the park, grabbing coffee, or hanging out at the library. Volunteers are not expected to provide transportation. Once we make a match, the volunteer and member can decide how they would like to communicate and what they would like to do if they meet up!
