Research, Special Projects and Master's Thesis in Counseling

Students often collaborate with faculty to further their clinical interests and training. Even though not a requirement of the program, this is an opportunity for students to complete a project of their own choosing or to assist a faculty member with their research. The department faculty have a variety of specializations. Students are welcomed to work with both undergraduate and graduate faculty in the Department of Psychology.

In the past, under the supervision of a psychology department faculty member, students have turned their passions into independent projects in research, program development, community service, and social advocacy. Students have also presented their work at professional conferences, both regionally and nationally, and published alongside faculty.
