How does a post-bac work?
Supplementary studies (hashlamot; post-baccalaureate) for the M.A.
In order to be accepted to one of the applied specializations without a B.A. in psychology, one must first complete supplementary studies. Supplementary studies are also required of those who hold a Bachelors degree in education and wish to apply for educational and clinical child psychology specialization. The supplementary studies include required courses and foundational psychology courses and they last at least two years according to the course catalogue.
In order to be admitted to supplementary studies, one must apply to the Office or Students Admissions. Take note: The Office of Student Admissions will only consider candidates with a score of at least 650 on the Psychometric test (the SAT I is also accepted) and a Bachelors degree without any F's and an average of at least 85 in theoretical sciences or at least 80 in experimental sciences. Likewise, one must present an acceptable exemption from English.
After the acceptance note from the Office of Student Admissions, the student will set a program of study in coordination with the B.A. student advisor. The student can request exemptions from required and foundational courses on the condition that he took them in a psychology department and received a minimum grade of 85. The student should present an official transcript and a detailed syllabus of each course for which he is requesting an exemption. The advisor will check the possibility of giving an exemption when they build the program of study. In order to apply for an M.A. in psychology, the student must present an average of at least 87 in his supplementary studies, and an average of at least 85 in theoretical sciences or at least 80 in experimental sciences in his B.A. With that exception, the student must comply with all other conditions for acceptance to the M.A. program like all other holders of a B.A. in psychology (including taking the MITAM).
