WHAT'S THERE IN A PSYCHOLOGY MASTERS

I always wanted to join a college that only specializes in masters' studies. Also though I did not have psychology in my bachelor curriculum however I had interests in it and wanted to solve so many prevalent problems because of it. The application was made through the university application portal for $55.


Course Curriculum - 

The masters in psychology program provide professional competency in psychology while developing an integrative understanding of the human person in application to service delivery and vulnerabilities that exist in the mental state and how to work for curing it.

STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY PROGRAM

I wanted to be a psychologist as my parents were both psychologists. After securing a GPA of 9, I attended some counseling sessions and selected this university as it is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award masters and doctorate degrees. Maintaining the highest academic standards, the institution educates new generations of professionals in psychology-related fields and open new areas of scholarship. I had applied through an online application form at the university. My application fee was around $55.


Course Curriculum - 

My Degree requirements were designed to be completed in five years of full-time study, four years of academic coursework on-campus, and one year in a pre-doctoral internship site. I was required to maintain full-time status at IPS for at least three of the four years of academic training. in addition to clinical coursework, I was required to complete a minimum of 1,800 hours of clinical practicum/externship.
