The Master of Arts degree in Psychology at Calumet College of St. Joseph reflects a two-tiered approach that incorporates a combination of theoretical and clinical practices that embodies several distinguishing characteristics:
Classes would be offered in a concentrated format over 7 or 14 week time periods. Students could complete two courses over the 14-week time periods consistent with the CCSJ's traditional spring and fall semesters. It is anticipated that students would also take at least one course each summer.
A core staff of Ph.D.-credentialed faculty, with extensive professional expertise would provide instruction. Part-time faculty would also participate in development and delivery of individual courses. The proposed strategy is uniquely responsive to the rapidly evolving nature of the profession. Faculty would be recruited through professional and academic sources including the Indiana and Illinois Psychologists Associations.
The Terminal Project course would prepare students to sit for professional licensure or certificates offered by the states of Indiana and Illinois and would contribute to the utilization and marketing potential of the program.
Ideal candidates for this program are professionals in education, human services, healthcare, business, and government sectors among others. Consequently, graduates of the Master of Arts in Psychology program could aspire to a broad range of jobs in middle and upper-level practice in a number of psychological related fields.
