Behavioral Health is a broad term generally understood to subsume mental health, substance use disorders, and health related behaviors. The 4+1 terminal Master's program in Behavioral Health provides qualified students earning a baccalaureate degree in Psychology or related fields (e.g., Public Health and Neuroscience) from Tulane University with graduate training in this specialty area of psychology.

Students in the thesis track complete 24 course credits and also produce a Master’s thesis comprising an empirical study in psychology. Students in the course-based track complete 30 course credits.
