    Best travel site rewards programs

    As frequent flier programs fall further out of favor, rewards programs from travel websites like Expedia, Orbitz and Priceline have stepped in to pick up the slack.

    The travel sites make it much easier to redeem points for actual benefits than the airlines do. And, in most cases, there are no blackout dates and you don’t have to accumulate tens of thousands of points or wait to redeem them.

    “The programs target once or twice a year travelers who already use and like the websites and who want to get some return on their spending,” said Brian Kelly, who runs The Points Guy. a site that reviews dozens of programs.

    But travelers need to be careful: Most rewards programs are tied to credit cards, some of which carry annual percentage rates of as high as 25%. That means it’s important to pay off the balance each month, or else it defeats the purpose of “earning” all of those points.

    And make sure you read the fine print: Find out when your points expire and what you can actually use them for before you sign up.

    Here are some of the top travel rewards programs and what you need to know about them.

    Perspectives Programs

    Experience new cultures. Come home with new perspectives.

    WorldStrides Perspectives programs put high school students at the very heart of new cultures and ideas in nations around the world—up close and personal travel experiences that last a lifetime.

    We immerse students in lifestyle, culture, and community. Going beyond sightseeing with authentic experiences—new foods, new friends, and new points of view.  Getting out there, in the wide open, opens eyes.

    You’re in good company

    Over 10,000 teachers and over 400,000 students travel with us per year. Since our founding, we’ve taken over 7 million students across the globe! We’re experts at taking students all across the world and bringing truly amazing experiences to life.

    Relax, we’ve got your back

    The safety of our travelers is our top priority!  Tour Directors are expertly trained to handle any situation, and there’s 24/7 support available from Tour Central in case you need a little extra help. View our safety measures

    A chance to soak it all in

    We believe real immersion in a culture makes for a more authentic experience. We want you to eat like the natives do, so we take you to local restaurants. We want you to bunk down right in the center of the action, so we put you in centrally located hotels. All this means more local flavor, and more hours to enjoy it! View more

    An interactive approach to learning

    Our trademarked approach to learning – LEAP – gets students actively involved in what they’re seeing and doing.  This active engagement between students, the places they visit, and their Tour Directors allows students (and teachers) to absorb more and build their knowledge and social skills. Learn more about LEAP

    Our accreditation as a school allows us to offer free college credit for student travel. It’s a great boost to student portfolios, and a competitive advantage when applying to college. To say thanks to our teachers leading the program, we also offer free professional development and graduate credit.  Read More

    WorldStrides is accredited by educational bodies across the country, and we have a dedicated Education Department – this means we’re an actual school (we just don’t have walls!). As a school, we can offer students high school and college credit, and teachers free professional development.

    The Graduate Admissions Portal for the Psychology Department is now closed. No additional documents can be submitted to the department at this time.

    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.

    Tips for How to Get Into Graduate School

    ***2016 Admissions Timeline***

    Students applying to the Counseling Psychology doctoral program to be admitted in Fall 2017 should adhere to the following dates:

    1. Applications (two online applications submitted to separate web-portals) are due on December 1, 2016.
    2. Applicants will be notified by December 31, 2016 whether they are invited to the campus interview day (Notifications to applicants who are invited to the campus interview on January 27th have been sent and confirmed in late December. For those who do not receive a notification, we appreciate your patience and interest in our program.).
    3. Campus interviews will be held on January 27, 2017.
    4. Offers of admission will be made by February 10, 2017.
    5. Final acceptance notifications from applicants are due on April 15, 2017.

    This year, our program will hold campus interviews on only one day (January 27, 2017). The campus interview day is a whole-day event that provides the opportunity for program faculty, current students, and applicants to learn about each other. It plays a critical role in our admission decisions. If the Counseling Psychology Program at UNT is your top choice, please reserve the date and make every effort to attend the campus interviews should you be invited.

    A Masters of Business Administration, or MBA, is the postgraduate degree in business administration and one of the most popular degrees for incoming graduate students, according to the Council of Graduate Schools (based on 2010 data). MBA programs attract students from a wide range of disciplines, including education, hospitality and computer science. Executives in public education, nonprofit and for-profit enterprises and in the health care industry may all benefit from the scientific approach to management MBA courses provide. Earning a Masters in Business Administration can provide a range of skills and tools for graduates outside of the business world including the following:

    Business Acumen: Running a business entails more than wearing a suit and tie. It involves understanding financial analyses and balancing the organization’s opportunity costs, both of which are taught in an MBA program. These skills can be valuable outside of traditional business environments, such as nonprofits or in education. Skills for running a successful business may help you keep costs down and ensure that the company stays within operational budgets and also prepare you to pull the plug on a project if it’s simply taking too long or not worth the time.

    Leadership: An MBA program can impart the value of leadership and all its related aspects through a combination of training and internships. These programs may help teach you how to put your newfound leadership skills to use not only in day-to-day business operations, but in life outside of work as well.

    Communication: An MBA program involves rigorous training, assignments, reports, presentations and group projects, all of which may provide you with the necessary communication skills to handle real-life business situations. The experiences you develop during the program have the potential to set you apart from others in your field.

    Networking: The alliances that you form with your classmates may last a lifetime and the network that you create can be one of the most important and valuable things you take away from an MBA program. MBA graduates have said they often felt that the associations formed during the program were invaluable and could be drawn upon for years after they have earned their degree.

    There are a number of MBA program specializations to choose from, including information security, operations management and accounting. Beyond the program specializations, there are also a number of different potential education paths you may take — full time, an executive program, distance learning or earning a double degree in two MBA focuses. There are many options, so it may be advisable to weigh the pros and cons of each according to your individual circumstances.

    Enriched Curriculum with Experiential Learning Opportunities

    • Your employer will guarantee that the required clock hours for the internship don’t overlap with those you’re already compensated for under your current employment contract.
    • There will be a qualified preceptor (master’s degree trained personnel in a public health related field) within the place of employment who can oversee the internship experience.

    • The program is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health, which is the only independent agency which accredits graduate public health schools and programs.

    • Online students earn the same respected degree as students in the traditional, on-campus MPH program.
    • You will always be able to get help from a full-time advisor when you need it.

    Doing the online MPH program gave me multitasking skills and the ability to keep working full time while taking classes…. I was put in charge of our health practices at my current job at a residential treatment facility. This program has served me well to keep pushing toward the future. I was able to implement a wellness program at the facility I work at for both staff and residents and have become the go-to person for health- and wellness-related questions.

    About this degree

    Single degree
    In a Bachelor of Arts program you will study a total of 144 units. Typically you will take 4 courses per semester (total of 24 units) as a full time student giving you a total of 24 (6-unit) courses across your whole degree.
    You’ll need to take one Arts major (8 courses) and one Arts minor (or specialisation) (4 courses), and four Arts electives (4 courses). If you’d like to, you can use your Arts electives to extend your Arts minor into a second Arts major. You’ll also get to choose eight electives from courses right across ANU. You can use these electives to try a range of courses or to take a major or minor in a non-Arts subject.

    In a Bachelor of Arts double degree program you will study a total of 96 units. Typically you will take 4 courses per semester (total of 24 units) as a full time student giving you a total of 16 courses across your whole degree. However, for each semester you are likely to take 2 courses from your Bachelor of Arts degree and then 2 courses from the other half of your double degree – still a total of 4 courses a semester.

    You’ll need to take one Arts major (8 courses) and one Arts minor (or specialisation) (4 courses), and four Arts electives (4 courses). If you’d like to, you can use your Arts electives to extend your Arts minor into a second Arts major.

    Enrolment Status

    While it’s possible to enrol in fewer courses per semester, which is called studying part-time, it will take you longer to finish your program and get your degree. If you are an international student you must always be full-time.

    A course (usually 6 units) can only be counted towards one major or minor.
    You need to enrol in courses for both First Semester and Second Semester.
    • You can’t study more than four courses (24 units) per semester, eight for the year.
    • You need to enrol in courses for at least one potential Arts major
    • You need to enrol in courses for at least one potential Arts minor or a second potential Arts major
    • You may take 1000-level courses later in your program. But remember you can’t count more than ten 1000-level courses (60 units) towards your single degree or six 1000-level courses (36 units) towards your Bachelor of Arts half of the double degree.

    Important things to keep in mind when choosing your 1000-level courses

    When you enrol for the first time you will study ‘1000-level’ courses. These courses have‘1’ as the first number in their course code, such as ARTS1234 .

    Majors and Minors

    There are over one hundred Arts majors, minors and specialisations available for you to study, from Ancient Greek to Visual Arts Practice.

    If you aren’t sure what you want to study for your whole degree, that’s fine. You don’t need to commit to majors or minors until after your first year. Using electives can help to keep your options open.

    From the list of Bachelor of Arts majors and minors choose the 1000 level courses you need to enrol in.

    Because there are so many options available, you will need to take your time choosing what you want to study.

    Electives

    While you only need to enrol in courses for one Arts major and one Arts minor, you can use your electives to enrol in 1000-level courses for other Arts majors or minors. That way you keep your options open. Once you’ve selected courses for an Arts major, and an Arts minor or second Arts major, you should choose electives to make up the balance of your courses.

    To find 1000-level courses, use the catalogue finder. Remember you can choose up to 8 courses from another ANU College at the University if you are undertaking the single Bachelor of Arts program.

    Study Options

    Bachelor of Arts – Single

    This is a typical study pattern for the first year of a student undertaking a Bachelor of Art with one Arts Major and one Arts minor.

    UNDER THE HIGH PATRONAGE OF H.S.H. PRINCE ALBERT II OF MONACO

    I am proud to bring my High Patronage to ‘Peace and Sport, l’Organisation pour la Paix par le Sport’ a humanist initiative that through sport, promotes a spirit of civic-mindedness, of dialogue and of acceptance necessary to ease tensions and establish peace in the world.

    Confronted by major crises linked to the trauma of armed conflicts, extreme poverty or the deliquescence of social ties, we have a collective obligation, even an urgent duty, to act in order to improve the quality of life of millions of men, women and children whose suffering is a blemish on the advancement of our century.

    In this uncertain world, sport and the rules of sport are a source of stability, education and integration for young people in vulnerable situations, thanks to the values of sharing, tolerance, respect and loyalty that it generates.

    Since its inception in 2007, through daily action Peace and Sport has demonstrated the utility of a neutral platform capable of uniting and federating a multitude of decision-makers in politics, sport, economic and civil life around this conviction.

    By fostering concertation between these actors, Peace and Sport helps to turn sport into an efficient lever to aid the emergence of sustainable peace in areas of the world that most need it, and to offer new horizons to those for whom the future seems obscure.

    More than ever, confronted with the enormity of need, Peace and Sport’s action is useful and necessary.

    I am convinced that this organisation, driven by a spirit of generosity and solidarity, brings vulnerable communities the possibility to surpass their differences and contribute to shape a more unified, more peaceful world, concerned with preserving the dignity of each and every man and woman.

    JOEL BOUZOU, PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER PEACE AND SPORT

    Founded in 2007, Peace and Sport is the Monaco-based organization under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II. Its objective is to bring the structuring values of sport to the heart of communities in crisis throughout the world, making sport a vehicle for tolerance, respect and citizenship at the service of sustainable peace. The backbone of its action is a group of over 80 high-level athletes, called Champions for Peace who dynamically support the organization s activities at all levels.

    In November 2011, Joël Bouzou was elected President of the World Olympians Association (WOA), the only international organization which unites all of the 100,000 athletes from 145 countries to have competed in an Olympic event.

    Current President of the French Federation of Modern Pentathlon, Vice President and former Secretary General (1997 to 2012) of the Union Internationale de Pentathlon Moderne (UIPM) and a highly accomplished Modern Pentathlete himself, Joël Bouzou has participated in four Olympic Games (Moscow 1980, Los Angeles 1984, Seoul 1988 and Barcelona 1992) winning a bronze medal during the 1984 Games.He won the World Championship title in Modern Pentathlon in 1987.

    In 1991, Joël Bouzou founded the association “Rassemblement par le Sport” (“Together through Sport”) and created the “Champions in the Street” program, which helps the social insertion of young people through sport in city suburbs, using champions as role models.

    A French national, Joël has been awarded the Legion of Honour (the highest decoration in France), and the National Order of Merit. He has also been decorated with the French medal ‘Médaille d’Or de la Jeunesse et des Sports’ (‘Gold Medal for Youth and Sports’).

    In 2010, Joël was awarded a Diploma Honoris Causa in Humanities from the UN-mandated University for Peace in Costa-Rica in recognition of “his unique worldwide leadership role in promoting peace and mutual understanding among different cultures, and his leadership of organizations devoted to these objectives.

    Joël Bouzou is currently Advisor to H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, Administrator of the A.S. Monaco Football Club and Member of the IOC Sport and Active Society Commission.

    RN to MSN Programs New Jersey #bs #to #msn #bridge #programs

    RN to MSN Programs in NJ

    There are six RN to MSN programs offered by schools based in New Jersey and a number of programs are offered online by schools approved and nationally accredited in other states. What this means to you is that there are a number of high quality RN to MSN options with a variety of specializations, one of which will match your strengths and career goals. Find the programs listed below along with their accreditation and contact information.

    RN to MSN Online Programs Offered in New Jersey

    The RN to MSN bridge program streamlines the education process, allowing registered nurses with a diploma or associate degree in nursing to complete their baccalaureate and master’s education in about three years. These programs are extremely focused and require a significant mount of dedication. Online RN to MSN programs do provide flexibility and convenience. Registered nurses can balance their pursuit of higher education with the demands of work and family. The AACN has expressed their support of the online RN to MSN program, stating that it makes higher education much more accessible. If three years sounds like too much of a commitment then check the RN to BSN programs in New Jersey. some of which can be completed in as little as twelve months.

    A survey of the nursing workforce in New Jersey titled, The State of the Nursing Workforce in New Jersey: Findings From a Statewide Survey of Registered Nurses*, documents several reasons why there is such a severe shortage of nurses in the state. There are also a number findings that support pursuing higher education, specifically an MSN.

    First off, 25% of the nursing workforce in New Jersey responded. Of the respondents only .3% held a graduate degree, 40% held a diploma in nursing, 32% held an ADN and 27% held a BSN. This supports a great job outlook for master’s educated nurses with so few nurses actually in possession of this level of education. Opportunities appear to be quite abundant for the master;s educated nurse from advanced practice to nursing faculty and leadership positions. The survey actually mentions that the RN to MSN program is one way to create a nursing faculty pipeline.

    An area of concern was found to be in the nurse manager area, where 57% of the nurse managers in New Jersey reported that their highest level of education was either an ADN or nursing diploma. Based on a study by Kramer, leadership skills are most frequently learned at the master’s degree level. (Kramer, Schmalen Maguire, 2004) This means skills such as conflict resolution and related management skills, that are integral in successfully managing a group of professionals, may be nonexistent for many nurse managers.

    The lack of managerial skills and support was found to have a significant impact on nurses in New Jersey, 43% said they did not consider their manager to be a good manager and 42% said that their nurse manager would not back them up. Sounds frustrating. This data further supports the need for master’s educated nurses in leadership positions throughout New Jersey as well as supporting the decision to pursue a master’s through an RN to MSN program in New Jersey.

    Ultimate Weight Management Programs

    Weight Management Overview

    The term weight management can encompass a wide range of issues, from eating disorders to overweight and obesity. With eating disorders addressed elsewhere on this site, this section will focus on overweight and obesity among adults.

    First, it is important to understand that, as they are used here, the terms overweight and obese are neither subjective nor judgmental terms. From a medical perspective, an adult is considered to be overweight when his or her body mass index (BMI) is between 25 and 29.9. Obesity is defined as a body mass index of 30 or above.

    It s hardly a secret that the United States has an obesity problem. In fact, it s not an overstatement to observe that this nation is in the midst of an overweight and obesity epidemic. Consider the following statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

    • Between 1960 and 1980, the adult obesity rate in the United States was about 15 percent.
    • Between 1980 and 2008, the obesity rate more than doubled (reaching 34 percent).
    • Today, only one state (Colorado, 19.4 percent) has an adult obesity rate below 20 percent.
    • Eight states have obesity rates above 30 percent, with Mississippi (33.8 percent) having the highest adult obesity rate in the United States
    • More than 32 of men in the United States are obese.
    • Among adult women, the obesity rate is 35.5 percent.
    • Approximately 73 million U.S. adults are obese.

    The obesity crisis in the United States has had significant impact in terms of both health and finance.

    Overweight and obesity have been associated with a wide range of health problems, including (but not limited to), hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, sleep apnea, and certain types of cancers. Experts with Stanford Hospital and Clinics estimate that overweight and obesity are responsible for 300,000 premature deaths every year, and the CDC has identified obesity as the top health risk in the United States.

    The Stanford experts also estimate that Americans spend $150 billion annually on obesity-related health issues.

    Causes of Overweight and Obesity

    At its simplest, weight management problems such as overweight and obesity are a matter of taking in more calories than are expended (or, in other words, eating too much and exercising too little). And in many cases, adults who are overweight or obese have adopted relatedly sedentary lifestyles while eating high-fat diets.

    However, given the epidemic levels of overweight and obesity in the United States, the problem isn t always quite as simple as this. Sociologists, doctors, and other experts have put forth a number of theories regarding the dramatic rise in overweight and obesity over the past three decades.

    In some cases, overweight or obesity is the result of genetic issues such as abnormal physiology or a hormone problem. Also on the biological front, body metabolism the process by which the body fuels continued growth may be impaired or impacted in a way that makes it difficult for a person to maintain a healthy weight .

    Health issues that can lead to overweight and obesity include hypothyroidism, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and Cushings Syndrome.

    External factors also contribute to overweight and obesity. For example, studies have indicated that individuals who live in impoverished areas may be more prone to becoming overweight or obese.

    This connection between poor neighborhoods and overweight or obesity occurs on two fronts:

    • Poorer neighborhoods are less walkable meaning that it is more difficult for individuals in these areas to get regular exercise.
    • Poverty-stricken areas are less likely to be served by larger grocery stores (which have better selection of healthy foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables). Residents who do the majority of their shopping at convenience stores are more likely to purchase high-fat foods and other less healthy items.

    Other issues that can lead to overweight and obesity include the taking of certain medications and the presence of depression or an inability to process stress and pressure in a productive manner. Many people use food as a way to elevate their mood or de-stress themselves, a practice which can quickly result in overweight or obesity.

    Symptoms of Overweight and Obesity

    As indicated elsewhere in this section, overweight and obesity are medical terms that correlate to specific body mass index (BMI) scores. Adults with a BMI of between 25 and 29.9 are classified as overweight, while those whose BMI is 30 or larger are considered to be obese.

    Normal weight is defined as a BMI of between 18.5 and 24.9, while a BMI of 18.4 and below is considered underweight. (These classifications are for adults only. Determining whether a child or teen is underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese involves determining where the young person s BMI falls on a percentile chart.

    BMI is calculated according to the following formula: (Weight in lbs. x 703) / (height in inches) squared

    Using metric measurements, BMI is calculated as follows: Weight in kb / (height in meters) squared

    For those who prefer not to perform these calculations themselves, a number of online BMI calculators are available. Most online BMI calculators simply require you to input your height and weight, and the software does the rest.

    Thought not necessarily symptoms of being overweight or obese, the following health conditions have been associated with overweight and obesity. As rates of overweight and obesity have risen in the United States, many of the following conditions have also become more common:

    • Type 2 Diabetes (Type 2 Diabetes was formerly known as adult-onset diabetes. The name change is due to the fact that more children are being diagnosed with this condition a development that many attribute to rising rates of childhood obesity)
    • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
    • Heart disease
    • Certain cancers (including cancers of the breast, colon, uterus, gallbladder and prostate)
    • Respiratory problems (including sleep apnea)
    • Liver and gallbladder disease
    • Gynecological problems
    • Osteoarthritis (a problem affecting joint cartilage and bone)

    Treatment For Weight Management

    Treatment for overweight and obese individuals will vary depending upon the causes of the weight management problems; the age, gender, and weight of the overweight or obese client; and the presence of any health problems that may have led to or been exacerbated by the overweight or obesity.

    For cases where the overweight or obesity is the result of a sedentary lifestyle, poor diet, or a combination of the two, treatment often involves nutrition education and a medically appropriate exercise plan. (Because overweight or obese individuals may be at increased risk for health problems such as heart disease, hypertension, and respiratory problems, it is important that they get the advice and approval of a healthcare professional before beginning an exercise regimen.)

    For individuals whose overweight or obesity may have resulted from an emotional condition or mental health disorder (for example, those who suffer from binge eating disorder, or who have fallen into the habit of emotional eating as a way of coping with stress), therapy and counseling may be necessary in order to reprogram the client s food-related attitudes and behaviors.

    In cases where counseling or therapy is called for, options may include any or all of the following:

    Of course, if the overweight or obese individual has also been struggling with any physical health problems, these issues must be addressed as part of the person s overall health plan.

    In some cases, losing weight may diminish a related health problem (for example, hypertension and joint pain may be lessened as one moves toward a healthy weight). In other situations, addressing a related medical condition such as an improperly functioning thyroid gland may lead to significant improvements in weight.

    Regardless of the degree to which a person is overweight or obese, it is important to consult with a healthcare provider or weight management expert to ensure that one s efforts to achieve and maintain a healthy weight are done in a safe and sustainable manner.

    What – s the Difference Between Accredited – Non-Accredited Degree Programs?


    #

    What’s the Difference Between Accredited & Non-Accredited Degree Programs?

    Bob’s College of Engineer Knowledge may lure you in with promises of chips and salsa in the study lounge, but will it get you a job at NASA? Probably not. NASA wants people who have graduated from an accredited engineering program because these programs had to prove their worth. Keep reading to learn the difference between accredited and non-accredited degree programs.

    What Is Program Accreditation?

    To become accredited, a program has to prove that it meets or exceeds the industry standard. For most fields, there are one or several organizations of seasoned professionals who create these quality measurements. For example, if you did want to study engineering, you’d want a program that was accredited by ABET (formerly the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology). This board examines not only the program curriculum, but also the quality of learning you’ll receive in your course of study.

    Important Facts About Accredited Degree Programs

    Associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees available

    Varies, depending upon intended institution of enrollment; associate and bachelor degree programs typically require a high school diploma, or equivalent

    Types of Accreditation

    Regional (traditional universities) and national (usually career and technical schools)

    Management analyst, teacher, web developer, art director, engineer, surveyor, database administrator, technical writer, compliance officer

    Downfalls of Non-Accredited Programs

    Non-accredited programs might not help you meet your advanced education or career goals. Some graduate programs won’t allow you to apply unless you have an associate’s or bachelor’s degree from an accredited program, so if you choose a non-accredited program for undergraduate studies, you’ll have to start all over. Depending on your career choice and geographic area, you might need to prove that you graduated from an accredited program to apply for a license to work in your profession. The same is true for some certification programs.

    How to Find Accredited Programs

    You have a couple options when looking for program accreditation. You can find a school that interests you and search their website for accreditation info, but this may require patience. Some schools place all of their accreditation on a general page, while others list them under individual departments.

    Another route is to locate the professional organizations that accredit programs you’re interested in and see which schools have programs accredited by them. Many of these organizations also list programs that have applied and are being considered for accreditation, as well as those that have had their accreditation revoked or suspended. If you need to attend an accredited program, make sure the program you’re interested in is accredited, not just the institution – although you may wish to check whether the institution is accredited by a U.S. Department of Education-recognized agency as well.

    When Non-accredited Programs Can Help

    If you are determined to get your bachelor’s degree in an esoteric field like architectural gingerbread appreciation, you probably won’t find a professional standards organization to accredit a program. Schools generally can’t apply for program accreditation until at least one student has acquired a degree, so if you want to attend a school that’s otherwise reputable and is beginning a new program, you can actually help them with the process. If you already have a career or don’t need the degree for immediate career purposes, a non-accredited program can still be a personal educational experience.

    Master s Degree Programs in Forensic Psychology

    Pursuing a career in forensic psychology can be an exciting way to enter the field of forensics for someone who has an undergraduate background in psychology. A forensic psychologist is someone who uses their training in psychology, including evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment, to work within some aspect of the criminal justice system. A forensic psychologist could be a therapist in a prison, an expert witness in court, a criminal profiler, or any combination of those.

    While forensic psychologists must have graduate level training, they do not necessarily have to study in a forensic psychology master s or doctorate program. Those that choose to seek a master s degree in forensic psychology should consider the necessary prerequisites for this type of program, the types of courses they might end up taking, and how they would like to pursue this advanced degree.

    Prerequisites for a Master s Degree in Forensic Psychology

    As with any master s degree program, any student wishing to apply to forensic psychology masters programs must have completed, or be on track to complete, an undergraduate degree. Most programs do not require that degree to be in forensic psychology, or in psychology at all. However, certain courses are usually required, such as Statistics and introductory level courses to psychology and to experimentation. For promising candidates, many schools exercise the option to grant conditional admission for students that have not completed all requisite courses, provided they can complete them within their first semester of the graduate program.

    Many selective programs also have a minimum GPA for applicants to their graduate level programs. This helps narrow the applicant field to those who have proven they can function successfully at an institute of higher learning. Most master s degree programs also require applicants take the GRE and may have established minimum scores for admission.

    Applicants should always keep in mind the requirements for individual programs can vary greatly and be sure to check with a program before applying.

    Featured Programs

    Common Courses Electives

    Every curriculum is different, but some generalizations can be made about the standard courses required for a master s degree in forensic psychology. Once prerequisites have been met, students can begin to take advanced courses in psychology, including general courses in research, psychopathology, and advanced statistics.

    When some basic advanced requirements have been met, students can begin to explore courses that focus on the forensic aspect of the forensic psychology master s degree. While these courses can vary at different schools, they may include such course titles as:

    • Psychology of Criminal Behavior
    • Victimology
    • Mental Health Issues in Policing
    • Terrorism
    • Violence and Aggression
    • Evaluation and Treatment of Juvenile Offenders

    This is not an exhaustive list, only a sampling of the kinds of courses found in the course catalogs for forensic psychology master s degree programs.

    Many programs may also offer courses that deal with the intersection of forensic psychology and other professions, including law enforcement and social work. It is also important to note that the majority of master s degree programs in forensic psychology do require an externship or practicum which involves students working in the field, under the supervision of a licensed psychologist. Some schools may offer assistance in obtaining these positions while others may leave the process largely up to the students themselves.

    Hybrid Online Programs

    Any student who chooses to pursue graduates studies may find him or herself concerned about where they will be able to attend school, particularly if they hope to continue working while furthering their education. Luckily, some forensic psychology master s degree programs do offer the option to study online, in part or in full, which can make attending graduate school that much more convenient. For instance, the Center for Psychological Studies at Nova Southeastern University offers an entirely online master s of science degree in forensic psychology. Argosy University. which focuses on online learning for all their courses of study, also offers an entirely online Master of Arts degree in forensic psychology. Some schools offer programs that are mostly or partially online. For example, the University of North Dakota offers a Master of Arts degree in forensic psychology that includes online lectures and one campus visit. Students in the UND program are eligible for in-state tuition no matter where they reside.

    Students should remember that these programs may still require some degree of in-person work, particularly when it comes to practicums that may required for the completion of the degree or for future licensing.

    Accreditation

    Finding a school that is accredited is essential, particularly for those students who plan to seek licensure in the future.Accreditation means that the forensic psychology master s degree program meets certain requirements in terms of its curriculum, faculty, and facilities. Schools may be accredited as an institute for higher learning, by an organization such as the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE). Similar commissions exist for different areas of the country. As an example, John Jay College of Criminal Justice has accreditation from the MSCHE.

    However, forensic psychology programs themselves can also earn accreditation separately from such professional organizations as the American Psychological Association (APA). In many instances, those students wishing to pursue an internship and eventually licensure may be required to study at an APA-accredited school.

    Hello Crossnet, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    If you mean that you do not have the Pin to taskbar option in the context menu, then this is usually caused by using a XP method to remove the shortcut arrow icon instead of the proper Vista and Windows 7 method. If this may be the case, then try restoring the default shortcut arrow overlay icon using either method in the tutorial below, then see if you have the Pin to taskbar option afterwards.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Moving pinned programs to the right of the taskbar
    Hello, Hopefully i’m posting at the right section. But I wanted to know if it is possible to make your pinned programs be at the right of the taskbar. So lets say you open a new program right now it comes to the right of the pinned programs right? Is it possible to move the pinned programs.

    Taskbar – Separate Pinned Programs
    How to Sort Pinned Programs into Categories on the Taskbar This is similar to how to pin folders to the taskbar, but my own ‘tweaked’ way of doing it with programs Example: Here is my version of the program sorting: Update- You can do this to make Shutdown/Restart buttons as well.

    Programs pinned to taskbar, loose their Icon
    I have Windows 7 RC installed on two different computers and this has happened on both. I’ll install a program I use a lot, pin it to the taskbar and some of the icons will lose their original icon after awhile. It doesn’t seem to effect the operation of the program or the shortcut to the.

    Can’t Switch Programs On Screen Via Programs Pinned to Taskbar
    An example: I open Firefox full-screen. If I try to switch to Outlook, which is open and showing in the taskbar, it wont let me. I am forced to minimize Firefox Same thing happens when Outlook is full screen.

    Odd problem with pinned programs on taskbar
    I seem to be having a problem with the pinned programs on my taskbar and I was wondering if anybody can help me here. Most of the programs on my taskbar simply highlight the icon that I clicked when I want to start the program or start a new instance of the program. However, a select few programs.

    Problem with right click on programs pinned to taskbar.
    Hello. I hope I’m in the good section for my post. When I right click on Windows Media Player on the taskbar, the recent files and task lists appears, but don’t work. when I click on a file or a task, nothing happen :(. However, it worked at the beginning (just after Windows installation).
