Purpose of Program

This program is designed for students who want to work with children and adolescents experiencing a wide range of academic, emotional, and behavioral difficulties. Common roles and functions of the School Psychologist include psychological assessment, counseling, consultation, crisis intervention, research, and program evaluation. School Psychologists work with students, their families, and school staff in order to help students be as successful as possible in school. The program is designed to provide students the academic and practical training necessary to become licensed as a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists. Graduates are eligible to apply for certification as a Nationally Certified School Psychologist, which is a nationally-recognized professional certification granted by the National Association of School Psychologists.

Program Options

The National Association of School Psychologists and the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists both require master’s and specialist-level programs in School Psychology to include at least 60 hours of coursework, including practicum and internship. These entities also provide very specific courses and domains of competence that must be reflected in the curriculum. The degree requirements and curriculum reflect these standards, which will facilitate the professional accreditation of the program and the licensure of our graduates. The requirements also are consistent with those of other School Psychology programs within the state.

The Master of Arts in School Psychology is a 66-hour program, and typically requires three to four years to complete. The program includes coursework and field-based experiences related to psychological assessment, intervention, learning, child development, psychopathology, research, statistics, and professional issues. Students also complete a full-time internship in a school setting. Due to the clinical nature of this program and number of hours required, the degree does not have a Thesis option.

Career Opportunities

School Psychology has been identified by the U.S. Department of Labor as a specialization that is likely to have faster than average employment growth. In addition, Texas has been identified as a state that will encounter one of the most serious shortages of School Psychologists in the near future. Thus, the job prospects for School Psychologists are very favorable. Minority and bilingual school psychologists are especially needed given the increasing diversity of public schools.

Get started here

Introduction to Environmental Sciences

00:17 Are you looking for a career that reflects that passion?

00:20 How much do you know about environmental science and its related careers?

00:24 Let’s explore the field and talk a little about what you can expect from a bachelor’s degree in environmental science from University of Phoenix.

00:31 Environmental science is an exciting area that brings together the natural sciences, environmental law, policy, and ethics to improve the way we interact with our world.

00:39 Throughout your degree program, you’ll learn about environmental protection, restoration, sustainable energy, and pollution control.

00:46 Increasing interest in environmental issues, combined with a growing need for sustainability, have expanded opportunities in this already thriving field.

00:54 Let’s take a look at some of the areas you’ll be learning about.

00:57 Ecology is the study of the interaction between living things and the environment.

01:02 Through research, ecologists provide vital information for the preservation and restoration of species and landscapes.

01:10 This basic information is essential for land managers and policymakers as they make decisions regarding species and ecological communities.

01:18 There is currently a huge need for this research.

01:20 Only 15 percent of species in the United States have been studied accurately enough to judge whether they’re endangered.

01:25 At a time when extinction rates are on the rise, understanding the ecology of species and landscapes is essential to their preservation and restoration. 01:34 A career in ecology might take you to a private consulting firm or government agency.

01:38 You may help monitor plant and animal communities, restore degraded landscapes, or provide data for construction and other projects to ensure they’re environmentally safe.

01:47 Keeping our environment safe isn’t always easy.

01:50 Pollution affects our ecosystem and human health.

01:54 Fortunately, efforts over the last 50 years, including the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts, have reduced the release of pollutants in the atmosphere and waterways.

02:02 Prior to the Clean Water Act, only one-third of waterways in the United States were clean enough to swim in. 02:07 Forty years after the act’s passage, 65 percent of waterways are safe for swimming.

02:12 This is thanks in part to the work of environmental scientists employed both by industry and agencies to ensure compliance with the law.

02:18 Jobs in pollution monitoring and mitigation include stormwater and wastewater management.

02:23 In these careers, you may guarantee compliance by collecting samples in the field for lab analysis.

02:28 Some positions focus on administrative roles, ensure that projects follow procedures and meet expectations.

02:35 You may even be asked to create a remediation plan for polluted sites. 02:39 Our society is dependent on energy.

02:41 Without energy, there can be no electricity, refrigeration, or transport. 02:46 Produce, meats and dairy, could not be shipped.

02:49 Businesses and hospitals could not operate effectively, and computers cannot function.

02:55 Energy is essential for our way of life.

02:58 Over half of our energy comes from nonrenewable fossil fuels, which contribute significantly to air pollution.

03:04 Coal fired power plants provide an incredible 40 percent of our electricity, making it the single biggest source of air pollution in the United States.

03:12 Our overdependence on nonrenewable sources has become more apparent in recent years.

03:17 When combined with the effects of global climate change, renewable clean energies such as hydropower, wind, and solar have become very attractive, but even these energy sources have their drawbacks.

03:27 Environmental scientists play a role in promoting such clean energies from their positions in industry, nonprofit organizations, and agencies.

03:36 Potential careers in energy include consulting about energy management and efficiency, as well as ensuring compliance with environmental regulations.

03:43 An environmental scientist is a critical thinker who analyzes problems, collects and interprets data, and works in teams.

03:51 You’ll learn how to improve these skills through collaborative and analytical projects.

03:55 As you pursue your degree, faculty will encourage you to think critically and holistically about environmental issues.

04:01 You’ll also receive a lab kit for chemistry to provide you with hands on experience in data collection and interpretation.

04:07 A degree in environmental science will allow you to use your passion for the environment in the best ways possible.

04:12 There are many opportunities in this field, and they can all make an impact in the protection of the environment.

Studies Suggest Genetic Link to Bipolar Disorder #bipolar #disorder #genes, #studies

Studies Suggest Genetic Link to Bipolar Disorder

Despite making huge strides in understanding the human genome and linking certain genetic defects to particular diseases, scientists have not been able to fully uncover the cause of bipolar disorder. While many researchers believe there may be genetic as well as environmental factors involved with the onset of bipolar disorder, our understanding of the cause of this condition is not yet complete.

Several studies point to growing evidence that bipolar disorder does indeed have a genetic origin. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, certain genetic defects have been positively attributed to causing particular genetic disorders. For example, a defect in a specific human gene causes cystic fibrosis.1 While researches have been able to link specific genetic defects to physical diseases such as cystic fibrosis, they have not been able to positively identify genes that directly cause mental illness, such as bipolar disorder.

Despite not being able to completely understand the role that genetics plays in bipolar disorder, several interesting studies have suggested that genes can at least a partially be held responsible for bipolar disorder. For example, a study of identical twins found that in approximately 40-70% of cases, identical twins will develop bipolar disorder, whereas another sibling has a lower risk.2 The fact that the twins would both develop the disorder suggests that a genetic link exists, considering that the twins share their genes and have a higher chance of developing bipolar disorder than other siblings.

Further studies provide further evidence for a genetic origin of bipolar disorder. Researchers at Johns Hopkins University discovered that approximately 40% of first degree relatives of bipolar patients also had bipolar disorder.3 A study at Stanford University found that children with at least one biological parent affected by the disorder have a substantially higher risk of becoming bipolar themselves. A staggering 51% of children born to a bipolar parent later develop a psychiatric condition themselves, most commonly bipolar disorder, ADHD or major depression.4 It’s not clear what the link is between bipolar disorder and children developing other psychiatric conditions, but the fact that such large numbers of children are affected suggests strongly that genetics plays a role in mental illness; a role that is not yet fully understood.

One final study, conducted by researchers at the University of British Columbia, provides some of the strongest evidence yet that genetics can indeed play a major role in human behavior. Researchers unintentionally deleted a particular gene in mice they were studying, and these mice became unusually aggressive. The animals maimed or killed their fellow mice for no apparent reason. The particular gene that was accidentally deleted, gene NR2E1, is found on chromosome 6 in humans and has been associated with bipolar disorder. This particular gene produces molecules that regulate and affect other genes, and is believed to play a role in brain development and function. When researchers inserted the human version of gene NR2E1 in the mice, their aggressive behavior stopped and they acted like mice are naturally supposed to.

While not fully understood, the continuation of studies into the role that genetics play in the development of bipolar disorder seems promising. Scientific studies that have followed children and siblings of bipolar relatives and the shocking aggressive behavior of mice lacking a specific gene have confirmed that genetics play at least a partial role in the formation of the condition. Researchers will continue to study the specific nature of the human genome in order to better understand and treat bipolar disorder in the future.

Master’s in Film and Media Production

Overview of our MA in Film and Media Production

The Academy makes the accelerated schedule possible by creating an extended academic year, allowing students to complete three full-length semesters in one calendar year.

New York Film Academy MA degree programs are offered only at our Los Angeles campus.

Throughout the filmmaking MA program each student writes, shoots, directs, and edits eight films, and works on at least 20 more.

ONE-YEAR ACCELERATED MA

The New York Film Academy Master of Arts (MA) in Film & Media Production is a three semester accelerated graduate program. Designed to educate aspiring content creators, it is a hands-on, total immersion, professional course of study. Each student will create eight of their own film media projects in an array of formats and genres. They will work in collaboration on their classmates’ projects on at least 20 more. The capstone of the MA Film and Media Production program is a written thesis paper exploring the ideas and themes that are studied during the course of the entire program. MA students will have opportunities to develop and deepen their thesis papers in the second semester of their studies in Thesis Development class, under the expert guidance of NYFA’s professionally active faculty. Students will then progress to finalize their thesis work in the third semester, in Thesis Review.

Film and media production is constantly evolving in the 21st century — and so is the New York Film Academy’s filmmaking Master’s program. NYFA’s filmmaking MA program provides creative visual storytellers with the skills needed to thrive and succeed. The intensive curriculum challenges students, develops their skills, and prepares them for the new and evolving production world of today. Students will gain experience shooting their projects on the newest in HD, film, and digital equipment, from Canon 5D to Red Dragon, as well as classic film cameras like Panavision and Arriflex.

FILMMAKING MA: SEMESTER ONE OVERVIEW

MA Filmmaking students begin their immersion in film production through a series of intense classes in directing, screenwriting, cinematography, and editing. These classes support a number of short film productions that quickly put students’ skills into practice and assist them with developing proficiency in the overall production process. Each student will direct four short film/media projects in the first half of the semester.

Students will also develop their leadership and collaborative skills through fulfilling the essential roles of Director of Photography, Assistant Camera Operator, and Gaffer (Lighting Technician) on the films of their classmates.

Dialogue production is explored in depth in the second half of the semester while classes in directing, screenwriting, and editing continue. The final project of the semester is the digital dialogue film, which students will write, direct, and edit.

Throughout the semester students are immersed in a course about the changing formats of media production in today’s entertainment marketplace. This course prepares them to undertake production of their thesis film in semester two either as a short film or as a new, still developing format, such as webisode, or content for mobile applications.

The combination of these classes will prepare students for the second semester and production of their Thesis Projects.

LEARNING GOALS

  • Art, aesthetics, and technique of visual storytelling including directing, cinematography, and editing.
  • Fundamentals of film production and digital editing.
  • Survey and examination of contemporary media formats and distribution vehicles from a content creator’s perspective.
  • Fundamental training in acting and directing actors.
  • Immersion in screenwriting craft.
  • Develop an ability to collaborate with — and lead — a student film crew.

PRODUCTION GOALS

  • Write, direct, and edit four short film/media projects.
  • Crew as cinematographer, gaffer, and/or assistant camera on approximately 12 additional films.
  • Write a short film script with dialogue.
  • Write, direct and edit a dialogue film.
  • Successfully complete Production Lab exercise.

FILMMAKING MA: SEMESTER TWO & THREE OBJECTIVES

The second semester of the Master of Arts in film and media production program challenges students to develop their craft artistically and technically, and to progress beyond their earlier achievements with the medium. Building upon the filmmaking foundations learned in the previous semester, students continue with their directing, screenwriting, cinematography, and editing classes.

Film Production Lab Two, an intensive in the field production class, provides instruction in all of these areas through a series of “in the field” productions. The development of professional on-set conduct, leadership, and collaborative skills are also rigorously developed in this class.

The branding and marketing required to make an entrance into the crowded contemporary media field is studied at length prior to production of the thesis project. This allows students time to acquire any provisions they need to successfully promote the project.

The last film project of the filmmaking MA is the Final Film: a single production of up to 15 minutes in length, or multiple shorter media projects. It may be a short film intended for film festivals and distribution which incorporates all of the disciplines instructed throughout the semester, or a new format as studied in the Media and Society class. Current examples include webisodes, branded entertainment, short TV pilots, or commercials. The students’ ambitions and capabilities as evidenced in the thesis project are expected to increase from the first semester projects. Students will also expand their knowledge of production and collaborative abilities through acting as crew members on five of their classmates’ productions.

Intensive classes in post-production assist the student not only with completing the final steps of the filmmaking process, but also with developing an ability to give and receive editorial and creative feedback on their project.

LEARNING GOALS

  • Advance in proficiency in the fields of directing, editing, and cinematography.
  • Develop an increased ability to produce short films at a higher level.
  • Advance in proficiency in collaboration and leadership skills.
  • Acquire a comprehension of branding and marketing as required to promote the thesis project.
  • Develop an ability to give and receive constructive editorial and creative feedback on a project.

PRODUCTION GOALS

  • Direct and edit a thesis project of up to 15 minutes in length (shot on 16mm film, 35mm film, or High Def).
  • Develop proficiency with the second semester equipment package.
  • Participate as a principle crew member in five fellow students’ films.
  • Direct or DP a Film Production Lab Two project.

FILMMAKING MA: YEAR-END SCREENINGS

The thesis project will be presented in a movie theater for an invited audience. Students are responsible for inviting all guests. This public screening is not part of the formal evaluation process, but serves as a celebration of the students’ progress and achievements thus far.

Philosophy Religion

Questions?

Philosophy explores the nature of the world, the basis of human values, and foundations of reason. Philosophy also offers the challenge of interpreting the work of thinkers who have created our intellectual traditions. Students approach these issues through study of both historical literature and contemporary developments.

The study of Western and Eastern religious traditions introduces students to a major influence on all civilizations. Journalists, diplomats, and government specialists benefit from a serious consideration of the inner workings of the religious ethos of civilizations. Daily events remind us that there is no more motivating factor in the culture of nations than ardently held religious belief. A thorough understanding of the modern world requires familiarity with its religious heritage. American University’s Washington, DC setting is advantageous for the study of religion, with national offices and centers for many religions. The Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area also offers a variety of courses in philosophy and religion that are available to American University students.

Why Study Philosophy or Religion?

Students often want to know the practical value of studying philosophy or religion. In other words, how will it help you in the future? What jobs are available for philosophy and religious studies majors? What if you want to continue on to graduate school, but don’t want to teach philosophy or religion?

The study of philosophy or religion helps students develop valuable skills leading to work in any number of fields. Studying philosophy or religion provides excellent preparation for graduate study in many disciplines and areas of study.

Check out a short piece from NPR on the need for philosophers engaged in public debate here .

Career opportunities

Students graduating with majors in philosophy or religion have chosen careers in law, medicine, social work, the ministry, computer science, environmental protection, human rights, journalism, communication, government, business, education, race relations, and applied ethics.

New studies have also shown that degrees in the Humanities, especially Philosophy, have great returns on investment .

Graduate school

Students have pursued graduate study in philosophy, religious studies, theology, history, psychology, linguistics, anthropology, medicine, law, economics, public health, literature, and education.

Intellectual development and skills

Philosophy and religion courses are ideal for students who want to develop and improve writing and analytical skills. Students of philosophy or religion become more aware of themselves and the world around them. By raising questions that explore the basic principles of existence and ultimate human concerns, the study of philosophy or religion helps students develop many skills such as the ability to

  • reason clearly
  • extract what is essential from large amounts of information
  • understand and analyze complicated texts
  • develop a well-structured argument
  • express ideas in a clear and persuasive manner
  • solve problems

Why Study Philosophy in DC?

Our location in the heart of DC provides:

  • Easy access to Smithsonian Institutions, museums, national monuments, and the Library of Congress
  • A wealth of varied and diverse internship and service opportunities with the federal government and non-profit organizations
  • Opportunities to see and participate in political life and history as it happens

Why Choose AU?

At American University, our graduate and undergraduate programs prepare students to enter into the field of professional philosophy or many fields of postgraduate education. Besides teaching the classics of historical and contemporary philosophical thought and important philosophical developments, many classes are devoted to the application of philosophy to issues concerning biomedicine, environmental protection, human rights, the media, business, and race relations. Alumni of our BA program pursue graduate work not only in philosophy but also in other fields such as history, psychology, linguistics, computer science, anthropology, and literature. Many positions in science and industry require the analytical skills gained through the study of philosophy. In addition, the Philosophy program emphasizes clear thinking, accurate writing, and problem solving as well as the application to today’s practical problems. These skills are excellent preparation for further study toward law, medicine, social work, the ministry, and other professional careers.

What Is Philosophy?

The best way to find an answer to this question is to take one or two philosophy courses (as part of your general education requirements). However, for those of you looking for an instant answer, philosophy is the study of ideas, whether moral, legal, religious, or aesthetic. Philosophers explore the nature of the real world, the basis of human values, and the foundations of reason. Students at American University approach these issues by studying texts from different periods as well as from different regions. For example, students study both historical literature and contemporary developments in Western and Asian philosophy as well as other traditions such as the Latin American and African.

Virginia Western Community College – Celebrating 50 Years

Beginnings.

Per legislation, effective July 1, 1966, Roanoke Technical Institute (RTI) of Virginia Polytechnic Institute (Virginia Tech) and the Roanoke Center of the School of General Studies of the University of Virginia merged and became Community College of Roanoke. That summer, under the leadership of President Dr. Travis McKenzie, programs and faculty combined and began fall quarter classes with an enrollment of 1,352 students.

During the first year of operating, the college was renamed Virginia Western Community College. In 1968, the first true class of Virginia Western students graduated.

Growth and Expansion

By 1970, new coursework in nursing, data processing, commercial art and traffic/transportation management were created in addition to existing engineering, business and liberal arts curricula. Student enrollment continued to increase and temporary classrooms were moved to campus. Still new in concept, campus was bustling with activity and students brought in events to form community and shape the school’s identity such as crowning a Miss Virginia Western, dances, and campus art shows outside.

“I have no doubt that VWCC was instrumental in my career success. Your college gave me a solid foundation in Electronics Engineering (I finished my AS degree there in Spring of 1980), and I was able to transfer to Old Dominion University and received my Bachelors degree in the Spring of 1982 without missing a beat, VWCC prepared me very well for the transition to that institution!!”
– Thomas W. “Tom” Richardson, Ph.D.
University of Virginia Staff, Systems and Information Engineering (SIE) Dept.

Increasing Access and Preparing for the Future

Virginia Western Community College continued to expand access of its services and options for its students and the development of the community in terms of physical growth, workforce support, transfer to four-year colleges and the launch of a program further removing financial barriers to obtaining a college education.

Similar to a half-century ago, another call-to-action was asked in the 2010s. Fifty years ago a knowledge gap was identified as the United States raced to compete as a technologically advanced nation. This time it is to close the skills gap. In this decade, Governor Terry McAuliffe identified a gap in high-demand jobs skills and called for a significant increase in workforce credentials to be awarded in Virginia in STEM-H (science, technology, electronics, math and healthcare).

“I was a first generation college attendee and graduate. I barely graduated from high school but VWCC is where I found what I love and I was exposed to wonderful people who taught me and inspired me. Even now, when I interact with my students, I want them to like and love me the way I did Ann, Paula, and Marty.”
– Misty L. Mesimer, RDH, MSCH, CDA
Dental Assisting Program Director, Dental Hygiene Program Local Coordinator
Germanna Community College

August 22 is Virginia Western Community College Day!

Now, Therefore, I, Sherman P. Lea, Sr. Mayor of the City of Roanoke, Virginia, recognize and commend Dr. Robert H. Sandel, President of Virginia Western Community College, along with the College’s many outstanding faculty, staff, students, alumni and supporters, and do hereby proclaim August 22, 2016, throughout this great All-American City, as “Virginia Western Community College Day.”

– Sherman P. Lea, Sr.
Mayor, City of Roanoke, Virginia
