Counseling Psychology

Counseling psychology focuses on the normal adaptation of individuals to their environment and with helping others cope with crises, problems of daily living and mental challenges. Traditionally, counseling psychology has been concerned with the preventative aspects of mental health and an emphasis on client strengths. You can find out more about the counseling specialty area on the Society for Counseling Psychology web page. The counseling psychology program at UNT is committed to the idea that human problems are the result of complex interaction of environmental factors and developmental changes in the person. The program provides professional training within the broad context of the scientist-practitioner model. The Director of counseling psychology training at UNT is Chiachih DC Wang, Ph.D..

The Ph.D. with a major in counseling psychology prepares students for work as independent professionals in research, academic, or applied settings. The counseling psychology doctoral program is fully accredited by the American Psychological Association’s Committee on Accreditation [750 First Street NE, Washington, D.C. 20002-4242, telephone (202) 336-5979]. The program was first accredited in 1978 under the directorship of Ray W. Johnson, Ph.D.

Genetic Counseling is not only an enjoyable and fascinating career, it is also one with national job growth potential !

The Augustana-Sanford Genetic Counseling Graduate Program (ASGCGP) welcomed its pioneer class — the Class of 2018 — on September 1, 2016, at the Sanford Center. The ASGCGP is a collaborative program among Augustana University, Sanford Health, and numerous other partners. It is one of less than 40 ACGC-accredited programs in the U.S. and the only one in South Dakota.

Applications for the 2018-2019 academic year will open in the Fall of 2017. All applications will be reviewed by the Genetic Counseling Graduate Program Admission Committee. Upon review, the committee will determine the most-qualified applicants, and they will be invited for on-site interviews. Offers of admission will be extended in April 2018.

While the first year is more heavily weighted toward classroom learning, students begin to have clinical patient interactions in their first semester. During the second year, the balance shifts away from classroom learning and toward a richer clinical experience.

12 years of school but just one day to graduate’ –


‘12 years of school but just one day to graduate’

Student-athletes among 120 who graduate from Window Rock High

Navajo Times | Adron Gardner
Window Rock Scouts seniors file up before Class of 2017 Window Rock High School graduation at the Fighting Scout Event Center in Fort Defiance May 26.

The Window Rock High School class of 2017 is no longer a group of high school students but is now alumni.

As the class of 120 received high school diplomas Friday morning in front of family, friends, teachers and Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye and Vice President Jonathan Nez at the Bee Holdzil Fighting Scouts Event Center, students expressed love for their school, classmates and optimism for the future.

Master of ceremonies Taylor Abasta led the march of his classmates as they entered. Before the ceremony started the Fort Lewis College-bound student said he will be majoring in journalism and multimedia.

I m going to miss the atmosphere here, said Abasta.

For the past four years Abasta was a member of the high school basketball team.

Like Abasta, class valedictorian Jade Okute Win Goodwill, who has been accepted to Stanford University, and D’Ovionn RaShan Wagner, who will be attending Northern Arizona University, played sports.

In her valedictorian address, Goodwill reflected on the four years of high school with her classmates and encouraged them on their future paths.

Goodwill was selected as the Arizona Interscholastic Association student of the year and Gallup Rotary student of the year. She ran track and cross-country.

“Twelve years of school, about 18 years of life, but just one day to graduate – it is crazy how time works that way,” said Goodwill. “Take pride in how far you have come and have faith in how far you will go.”

“The sports program here is fun,” said Wagner. “You become close to a lot of the girls and it’s sad leaving.”

Wagner, who played on the girls’ basketball team, plans to major in exercise science with an emphasis in physical therapy.

Ryan Dodson was a Navajo government and history teacher as well as cross-country and track coach and senior class sponsor. He had taught or coached some of the seniors since they were in middle school. He said it was particularly special to see the class graduate.

“We looped back with them, we taught them when they were eighth graders and so now we have them as seniors,” said Dodson. “It adds a special sentiment.”

Guide for Writing a Funding Proposal #funding, #proposal, #grant, #funding #proposal,



This Guide for Writing a Funding Proposal was created to help empower people to be successful in gaining funds for projects that provide worthwhile social service. A major theme that runs throughout the Guide is a concern for the development of meaningful cooperative relationships – with funding agencies, with community organizations, and with the people you are serving – as a basis for the development of strong fundable initiatives. The Guide is built on the assumption that it is through collaboration and participation at all levels that long term change can be effected.

To make this Guide as useful as possible, all suggestions have been carefully reviewed with a concern that they be easy to implement and can have the greatest positive effect on the creation of a funding proposal. (This is the same design concern that I used for the creation of the companion guide for graduate students – Guide for Writing and Presenting Your Thesis or Dissertation ). Long orations are minimized and suggestions are presented in a direct and clear manner. Actual proposal examples are included so that you can easily see the different suggestions demonstrated.

As you are going through this Guide you will probably see things that aren’t clear, need fixing, or should be further clarified. Please send them along and I will do my best to improve the Guide based upon your ideas. I try to make major revisions in the Guide at least 2-3 times each year. Your suggestions on how to improve this Guide will be most appreciated

And finally, I receive many requests asking me to recommend a book or two that would be helpful in writing a good proposal. I’ve started to create such a listing of books I’ve identified and my review of each of them. Feel free to check out my selection of books to help with the preparation of a funding proposal .

Enjoy using this Guide and I hope it brings you good luck as you seek funding for your ideas!

Graduate programs for industrial organizational psychology #graduate #programs #for #industrial #organizational


M.S. Industrial/Organizational Program


The Master of Science Degree in Industrial & Organizational Psychology provides a comprehensive slate of I/O-specific courses designed to prepare students for immediate entry into careers in applied settings. Academic coursework is supplemented with an applied externship completed for academic credit. The program requirements provide excellent preparation for those interested in pursuing a Ph.D. upon completion of the MS. The course of study also includes a strong, five-course quantitative sequence in research methodology, statistics, and measurement. I/O students are expected to become competent in theory, research, and application of psychology as each relates to human behavior in private and public organizations.

The primary objective of the industrial/organizational program is to provide students with the skills to apply the principles and methods of psychology to organizations, public and private, and to settings where people are engaged in work. To be successful in this application, the graduate must have developed knowledge and appreciation of psychological theory and research as they apply to organizations and people at work, and mastery of the measurement and research technologies which are commonly used in the discipline.

Externship Program

The externship program is currently under the direction of Dr. Ken Shultz. The standard externship experience is at least half-time work over a three-month period. It is typically completed during the summer after the first year’s coursework. Southern California’s urban areas provide a wealth of opportunities for hands-on experience. Students have completed externships with such organizations as Sempra (Southern California Gas Company), The Los Angeles Unified School District, the Betty Ford Center, Edison International, and Fleetwood Enterprises. We believe the externship experience is a major contributing factor to the marketability of our graduating students.

Note. The forms listed above require Microsoft Word to view. If you need the reader, you can the Microsoft Word Viewer for free.

Student Programs

Dr. Mark Agars is the current faculty sponsor of the I/O student group “Students Promoting Industrial/Organizational Psychology” (SPI/OP). SPI/OP hosts guest speaker presentations on compelling themes in human resource management. Through committee work, newsletter contributions, and interaction with business student organizations, active members can develop connections with regional business organizations and can become a part of the SPI/OP network of future I/O professionals.

Selected I/O students also contribute their time and energies to a mentoring program for new undergraduate students. Dr. Agars is the current director of our student mentoring program. Upon selection, entering students are assigned to a second-year student who can provide information and advice.

Environmental Sciences: Environmental Sciences Graduate Program #graduate #degree #program #in #ecology


Current page is: Graduate Program

The Environmental Sciences Graduate Program offers the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Environmental Sciences.

Advanced training in Environmental Sciences is becoming increasingly necessary to address complex problems involving natural resources and environmental quality. Although this task frequently requires specialized knowledge in various fields of science, it also requires understanding and integration of a wide variety of interacting physical, chemical, biological, and societal influences. This interaction makes graduate study in environmental sciences distinct from many other scientific fields. We have designed our program to offer graduate training in a number of specialized focus areas within environmental sciences, operating within a single graduate degree program administered by the Department of Environmental Sciences. Students trained in the Environmental Sciences Graduate Program can fill many areas of expertise needed in the state and nation. Potential career opportunities exist at regulatory agencies, consulting firms, government and academic research institutions, and industrial research facilities.

Fall Quarter Admissions Priority Deadline: December 1

The Environmental Sciences Graduate Program offers graduate training in:

Master‘s Degree

The Department of Environmental Sciences offers the M.S. degree in Environmental Sciences under the Plan I (Thesis) and Plan II (Comprehensive Examination) options. The general requirements for the M.S. degree are found in the Announcement of the Graduate Division.

Plan I (Thesis)

Students must complete a minimum of 36 quarter units of graduate and upper-division undergraduate courses in, or significantly related to, environmental sciences. At least 24 of the 36 units must be in graduate courses. A maximum of 12 of these units may be in graduate research for the thesis. No more than 4 units of ENSC 290 and 2 units of graduate seminar courses may be applied toward the degree. A thesis must be written and accepted by the M.S. thesis committee members, and a final oral defense of the thesis must be passed. Students also will be required to give a presentation annually at the Environmental Sciences Graduate Program Student Symposium.

Plan II (Comprehensive Examination)

Students must complete a minimum of 36 quarter units of graduate and upper-division undergraduate courses in, or significantly related to, environmental sciences. At least 18 units must be in graduate courses. Students may count no more than 2 units of graduate seminar courses and 6 units of graduate internship courses toward the required 18 units and no units from graduate research for thesis or dissertation.

Students must take a comprehensive written examination that covers fundamental topics in environmental sciences. The written examination, which is three to four hours long, is prepared and evaluated by a committee appointed by the field director. The examination is taken during the latter part of the final quarter in the M.S. program. Students must wait at least eight weeks before retaking a failed examination. Students failing the examination twice are dismissed from the program.

Normative Time to Degree

Doctoral Degree

The Department of Environmental Sciences offers the Ph.D. degree in Environmental Sciences. The general requirements for the Ph.D. degree are found in the Announcement of the Graduate Division.

Course Work

Students must complete the course requirements and will be required to give a presentation annually at the Environmental Sciences Graduate Program Student Symposium.

Comprehensive Written Examination

Following completion of all coursework prescribed by the student’s Advisory Committee, a written qualifying examination will be prepared and administered to the student by a Written Qualifying Examination Committee. The Written Qualifying Examination Committee will consist of at least three faculty members with interests in the student‘s line of research. The purpose of the written qualifying examination is to determine that the student has gained sufficient knowledge in the chosen field to perform professionally and competently. The written exam may be attempted only twice. If the written qualifying exam is failed twice, the student will be redirected to the M.S. degree or terminated from the program.

Oral Examination

A student who satisfactorily passes the written qualifying examination may proceed with the oral qualifying examination, which will focus on the dissertation proposal. The oral examination is conducted before the Oral Qualifying Examination Committee, consisting of five faculty members, one of whom must be from outside the ESGP. The oral examination may be attempted only twice. If the oral qualifying exam is failed twice, the student will be redirected to the M.S. degree or terminated from the program. The written and oral comprehensive examinations will normally be taken at the end of the second year of graduate study and before the start of the third year.


All Ph.D. students must write a doctoral dissertation, which must be read and accepted by all members of the Doctoral Dissertation Committee, comprised of at least three faculty members from the ESGP. A final oral thesis defense in front of the three committee members must be passed.

Relationship between Master‘s and Doctoral Programs The M.S. and Ph.D. programs are separate. Students who enter the Ph.D. program do not need to acquire a M.S. degree first, although students may elect to take both.

History Graduate Jobs #history #graduate #programs #online


Graduate jobs with a history degree

What can a History graduate do?

The career choices available to History graduates are broad. The proficiencies gained during a History degree are applicable across a wide range of sectors, including Finance. Management, Retail and more—which means it is up to graduates to decide which kind of career they want to pursue.

While History degrees are typically non-vocational, with no direct career path after graduation, they do provide graduates with a host of versatile and useful skills, such as cross-referencing, writing and research techniques. The key is to know how to sell these competencies in CVs, covering letters and interviews.

Graduates should think about how best to highlight their areas of expertise. They can begin by closely reading job descriptions and thinking of examples from their own experiences during their studies which demonstrate that they have the desired skills.

Taking Stock of Skills

History graduates have a wide range of skills to offer employers:

Analysis – Reading historical texts helps graduates develop the ability to comprehend large amounts of information and extract key details to apply to specific situations, an approach which is useful in almost any profession.

Communication – Good communication is vital for employment. History graduates excel at writing and presenting to a high standard, indicating that they are able to come into a new work environment and articulate themselves in a professional and appropriate manner. This is relevant across many fields, from Consultancy to Management to Sales.

Intelligent Insight – History graduates are able to take a large amount of data and compile thoughtful and intelligent reports, presentations or recommendations. This is a valuable skill across many sectors, where the ability to notice and highlight trends or anomalies, and provide insight on them, is essential.

Research – Research is important for many jobs, and after three years of independent study, History graduates are especially strong in this regard. Graduates should not underestimate the value of their ability to conduct research and work independently.

Prioritisation – The ability to balance different avenues of work, and recognise each individual part and its effect on others, is a talent which History graduates should be proud they have mastered. Whether it is working through a list of tasks or compiling work, the ability to prioritise is something which makes History graduates stand out.

The Department of Psychology at Florida International University has a faculty of distinguished psychologists known for the highest achievement in research, teaching, and active engagement in community settings. The Department is meaningfully involved in the vision propelling Florida International University to be a leading urban public research university focused on student learning, innovation, and collaboration.

Rigorous, scientific training is the foundation of the Florida International University Graduate Psychology program. Our success in producing quality research is, in part, rooted in our ability to attract talented, innovative, and successful graduate students.

The Department offers graduate training in these areas of specialization:

The graduate programs combine classroom instruction and advanced seminar participation and emphasize student and faculty collaborative research. All programs of study provide intensive exposure to the theoretical and methodological foundations of psychology with a strong emphasis on quantitative skills.

The Department offers programs of graduate study leading to the degrees of Master’s of Science and Doctor of Philosophy. Doctoral graduate study in the Department is full-time study. Our Doctoral students are financially supported with teaching assistantships, clinical assistantships, research assistantships, or university-level fellowships. Graduate students are actively engaged in publishing the results of their work in peer-reviewed journals and presenting these results at scientific conferences. The Department does not admit students for a terminal Master’s degree (with the exception of the Professional Mental Health Counseling program) and students who receive financial support are expected not to hold other employment during their graduate training.

Graduates of our program are prepared for careers in both academic and applied settings including positions at universities and colleges, research and governmental organizations, business and industry, clinics and hospitals, and mental health settings.

    Master of Science in Counselor Education – School Counseling (MS)

    More information:

    The Master of Science in Counselor Education: School Counseling emphasis is designed for students wishing preparation as counselors in school settings, primarily public schools. The SOC code for this particular occupation is 21-1012.

    Counseling Education Program Mission Statement

    The Counselor Education Program at Eastern Washington University is committed to the selection, training, supervision, and professional success of counseling students, in keeping with the high standards established by the Council for the Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). As a regional teaching university, EWU has a proud history of providing education to a high percentage of first generation college students, often from under-represented and lower socioeconomic communities, a tradition which the Counselor Education program maintains. Thus, counselor training occurs in a learning community that is intentionally focused on both skills development and personal growth of the counselor-in-training. In this way, Counselor Education fulfills its purpose of preparing competent and caring professional counselors to meet the needs of diverse urban and rural communities.

    Classes and experiences are organized to provide thorough instruction in the skills and knowledge generally recognized by the counseling profession to be effective with a K-12 population. Candidates not only focus on the following in the graduate classroom, but also for the K-12 population he or she will serve: academic, career, and personal/social development. The program is not only accredited by CACREP, but is approved by the Washington State Professional Educator Standards Board (PESB). Graduates of the program meet the requirements to become an Educational Staff Associate (ESA), the credential held by School Counselors.

    Candidates of the program will have education and experiences shaped by the ASCA (American School Counseling Association) National Model. They also have opportunity to be mentored by professionals in the community while they complete an internship. This relationship helps guide the candidate in construction of a professional portfolio, which is a product of the knowledge and skills gained through the graduate experience. Themes include leadership, advocacy, collaboration, and systemic change, which are incorporated into the components of the ASCA model. The components are foundation, management, accountability, and delivery. Instruction includes all of these aspects, along with the CACREP core competencies, providing graduates with a solid entry point for a rewarding career.

    A student enrolled in this program can expect to graduate in 21 months or 6 academic quarters over 2 academic years. We have a 100% on-time completion rate once a student begins. Resident tuition for the school couneling program is $21,906.96 for two years (2016-2017) and non-resident tuition is $50,876.76 for two years. Fees for two academic year average around $1200.00 and estimated book costs for the program for 2 years is $1000.00. Gainful Employment Electronic Announcement #42 – 2011-2012 Disclosures for Gainful Employment Programs

    Number of Graduates

    Approximately 40 students were enrolled in the program with an estimated 75% graduation rate during the 2013-2014. Average completion rate is typically higher and ranges between 85% and 100%. The Program accepts a variable number of students each year, but is typically 24-30 with 50% in each emphasis – meaning 12 school counseling candidates. Eighty percent of accepted students graduate in the expected time period, two years for full-time students. Courses accommodate only full-time students. When a student graduates from this program, he or she is able to enter the workforce at the MA + 45 level at any school district in Washington.

    What will I study?

    Classes and experiences are organized to provide thorough grounding in the skills and knowledge generally recognized by the counseling profession. The program is accredited by CACREP and exceeds the Washington state requirement for ESA-School Counselor Certification.

    Practical application is stressed and students are provided early and continuous skill practice with personalized feedback and coaching. Continuous opportunities for expanding awareness of the self of the counselor will be provided.

    Of course, some schools and programs are much more selective than others. These include the usual suspects, including programs within the Ivy League, which can have admission rates below 10 percent of students. Stanford and Harvard business programs, for example, admit about 7% and 11%, respectively. Medical schools like George Washington University and the Mayo Medical School admit around 2 percent of applicants. Technology programs, elite music programs and schools like Cooper Union are also very selective. READ MORE >>

  • Trinity Center – Trinity Washington University #mba, #msa, #trinity, #trinity #college,


    Welcome to the Trinity Center

    The Trinity Center for Women and Girls in Sports is a $20 million state-of-the-art athletic, recreational and educational complex located in the heart of Trinity Washington University s campus in northeast Washington. Proudly the nation s largest facility dedicated to women and girls in sports, the Trinity Center is home to Trinity s NCAA Division III athletic programs and the Trinity College community.

    The Trinity Center can be your home for fitness too with a number of great fitness programs. We have memberships available for individuals and families. To meet the needs of area schools, community organizations and local businesses, the Trinity Center has facility rentals for organized sports and special events.

    Breaking News: Check out our shout out from the Washington Post: The entire article: .

    Share this with your friends, family and co-workers and encourage them to download our 7 day pass!

    When pollsters interrupt people’s dinners to ask about their New Year’s resolutions, very often the top three responses are “get in shape,” “lose weight” and “save money.” Find a deal on a gym membership, and you can do all three. Here’s how…

    • Go to college: Colleges and universities are another often-overlooked resource. Most now have elaborate exercise facilities to attract students, and many offer memberships to the community. In the D.C. area, one example is Trinity Washington University, which charges Brookland neighbors $520 a year to join its Trinity Center gym. Compare that with the roughly $600 to $1,200 a year some of the big D.C. gym chains charge, according to Consumers’ Checkbook.

    To apply to the CWU Graduate School, prospective students can use the new on-line application form .

    The M.A. in Online Professional and Creative Writing enables graduates to develop publishable writing in multiple genres, establish a professional writing profile, advance in the workplace, and continue to MFA or PhD programs. With mentorship from award-winning writers working in poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction, and from experts in professional and technical writing, rhetoric, and research methods, they can develop custom-fit courses of study and can finish in four quarters.

    The Education Specialist (EdS) in School Psychology Summer Cohort graduate program prepares students to work as certified school psychologists in K-12 schools. Coursework is completed during the summer on the Ellensburg campus and online during the academic year. Graduates are prepared to offer a full-range of school psychological services, including assessment, consultation, and intervention for academic, developmental, and behavioral concerns.

    The Master of Education, Higher Education program is designed for candidates with an interest in working in administrative positions in institutions of higher education, civic organizations, non-profit organizations, national government organizations, or the social sector. Program coursework provides students with a strong grounding in leadership / management / organizational development with particular attention to the higher education context.

    Master of Education: Literacy

    The Master of Education Literacy (formerly known as MEd. Reading Specialist) program is designed to allow candidates to pursue graduate-level study in the various levels of literacy through an online format. The successful candidate will be able to work as a Reading Specialist or Literacy Coach.

    The Master Teacher, M.Ed. is a graduate program for classroom teachers intending to advance their careers or assume positions of leadership within their schools. The program allows current teachers to focus on an area of emphasis in the P-12 classroom setting. Key components of the program are student choice, allowing you to design your own program, and flexibility.

It is not a sport marketing or sport management program. Students applying for this program are expected to have an undergraduate degree in health and physical education or extensive related practical experience. Because the requirements to become K-12 athletic directors vary between school districts, students intent on pursuing careers in athletic administration should check into local school district athletic administration requirements.

    Essential Information

    Criminal psychology is a relatively new, but growing aspect of the criminal justice field. Students enrolled in Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology programs learn to apply psychological theories and skills to cases that arise in the criminal justice system. At the doctoral level, students focus on independent research, as well as specializations in several fields. Typically, Ph.D. programs in this area take four to five years to complete, with some programs offering online courses.

    An undergraduate degree is an absolute prerequisite for most graduate programs in criminal psychology. Forensic psychology programs accept students with educational backgrounds in criminal justice, psychology, social work, counseling, sociology and similar subjects. A strong grade point average, communication skills and close attention to detail are also recommended for students considering graduate studies in criminal psychology.

    Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology

    The most basic component in a graduate degree program focusing on criminal psychology is an in-depth understanding of advanced psychological theories and concepts. Students then learn to use these theories in the context of the criminal justice and legal systems. They learn to work with lawyers and judges to select psychologically competent jurors, apply psychological tests to defendants and prosecutors, and submit psychological analyses in court.

    The courses included in a Master of Forensic Psychology degree program cover both criminology and psychology. They include:

    • Foundations of forensic psychology
    • Psychology and law
    • Social and behavioral psychology, including criminal behavior
    • Diversity and psychology
    • Psychological profiling
    • Psychology and conflict management

    Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Forensic Psychology

    Graduates from a master’s degree program in forensic psychology or a similar field may continue their education with a Ph.D. program in forensic psychology at an accredited university or professional school of psychology. The most common degree that is offered at this level is a Ph.D. in Forensic Psychology; Doctor of Philosophy in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Forensic Psychology programs are also available.

    A Ph.D. program in this field often requires a great deal of independent research. Students typically choose one particular area of study on which to focus, such as risk assessments, clinical interventions or witness evaluations.

    Program coursework in a Ph.D. program in forensic psychology can vary from student to student, as each individual is required to choose a particular subject to research thoroughly. Much of the work of a Ph.D. program in forensic psychology is done individually and oftentimes contributes greatly to a dissertation. Some required classes may cover the following:

    • Justice and legal systems
    • Domestic violence and psychological problems
    • Stalking, addiction, and their related psychological problems
    • Psychology and police stress
    • Forensic research
    • Criminology

    Popular Career Options

    Specialists in criminal psychology can hold many jobs, including psychological profiler, court appointed or prison psychologist, community mental health administrator, social service agent, juvenile court and state forensic psychologist, correctional treatment specialist, or criminal researcher. There are a few more advanced career options open to an individual who holds a doctorate degree in forensic psychology. These jobs include:

    • Forensic psychology professor
    • Criminal psychologist
    • Mental health facility administrator
    • Prison psychology administrator
    • Eyewitness testimony expert

    Job Outlook and Salary Statistics

    Psychologists in general are expected to see a 19% increase in employment from 2014 to 2024, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), The BLS reports that psychologists, other than clinical, counseling and school psychologists, earned a median annual income of $94,590 as of May 2015.

    Common graduate programs for aspiring criminal psychologists include a master of arts and doctor of philosophy in forensic psychology. These programs dissect the psychological aspects of crime, law, and related topics, preparing students for careers as professors, criminal psychologists, and more.
