1 CONSIDERING GRADUATE STUDy IN PSYCHOLOGY? THE FMU PSYCHOLOGY DEPARTMENT OFFERS TWO DEGREE OPTIONS: Master of Science in Applied Psychology (M.S., Clinical/Counseling Psychology) Coordinator of Clinical/Counseling Psychology: Dr. William P. Wattles Master of Science in Applied Psychology (M.S.) plus Specialist in School Psychology (S.S.P.) Coordinator of School Psychology: Dr. Samuel F. Broughton CLINICAL/COUNSELING OR SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGY? The Clinical/Counseling option prepares students for licensure as Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC) who are trained to work in a variety of mental health settings and with a variety of populations. They are trained to do assessment and psychotherapy (counseling). An LPC might work in a mental health agency, open a private practice, be a counselor in a substance abuse treatment program, or work as a behavioral health counselor in the schools, to give a few examples. The School Psychology option trains students to become Specialists in School Psychology (Level II Certification; LPES). They work primarily as psychologists in schools largely doing assessment and planned interventions, although they are also trained to do therapy with children and families and systems-level consultation. For example, a school psychologist can evaluate a child s social, emotional, and/or educational needs and then help develop a program to address those needs. School psychologists also are eligible for private practice as a Licensed Psycho-Educational Specialist (LPES). HOW DO I APPLY TO THE PROGRAM? 1. Submit a graduate application for admission and pay the non-refundable graduate application fee. 2. Submit official transcript(s) of all undergraduate and graduate work.

2 Completed applications are reviewed for merit by the Psychology Department faculty, and all components of the application packet are considered. In the admissions decision process, consideration is given to both the merit of each application received and to the number of slots available in the program at the time of application. Application materials received after the application deadlines may still be considered for admission contingent upon the availability of positions within the program. It is the applicant s responsibility to gather all materials to complete his/her application. Only completed applications (with all required materials) will be reviewed for possible admission. HOW ARE ADMISSIONS DECISIONS MADE? The application process is competitive, and the program has a limited number of openings. Selection is based on an applicant s academic potential, which is determined by the overall quality of their application packet. On the original GRE, a combined score above 850 with a minimum of 400 on each of the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections is recommended. On the revised GRE, combined scores above 290 with a minimum of 140 on each of the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections are recommended. CAN AN APPLICANT APPLY BEFORE THEY HAVE TAKEN THE PREREQUISITE COURSES? No, you must have already completed the two prerequisite courses (an introductory psychology course and a behavioral statistics course) in order to be considered for admission. Your application is considered incomplete until these courses have been taken. WHICH GRE TEST DO I NEED TO TAKE? We only require the general GRE and not the subject test. The GRE is given by ETS. To learn more about where testing is offered in your area, please visit their website at IS THERE FINANCIAL AID AVAILABLE? We have a number of scholarships available to graduate students. Award decisions are based solely on academic merit. They are renewable for six consecutive semesters. Out-of-state scholarship recipients are eligible for in-state tuition. We also have assistantships available; the number available varies each semester. These entail approximately 20 hours of work per week. Four of these are teaching assistantships. In addition, there frequently are other assistantship and employment opportunities available for graduate psychology students on campus. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO COMPLETE THE PROGRAM? The Clinical/Counseling option is a minimum 52 semester hour program that typically takes 2-1/2 to 3 years to complete. The School option is a 72 semester hour program that typically takes 3 years to complete. WILL I BE LICENSED WHEN I FINISH THE PROGRAM?

12 Francis Marion University Psychology Department Graduate Program in Psychology Information about Scholarships and Assistantships The scholarships and assistantships available to students enrolled in the graduate program are described below. Scholarships and assistantships are available on a competitive basis. Students must complete an Application for Scholarships and Assistantships to indicate their interest in receiving one of these scholarships and/or assistantships. All applications returned by the specified deadlines will be reviewed for academic merit by the Psychology Department faculty. Determination of merit includes consideration of academic performance at the applicant s baccalaureate institution and, for currently enrolled graduate students, in the graduate program. For the PSY 216 and PSY 220 teaching assistantships, potential for effective instruction is an additional consideration. Scholarships The Department has a limited number of $250 scholarships available to graduate students enrolled in the MSAP program. Out-of-state students who receive a scholarship in the amount of $250 or more per semester are eligible for in-state tuition. Awards made in the spring and used toward that spring semester s tuition also can apply toward the subsequent summer semester s tuition. Both in-state and out-of-state students are considered for these awards, and award decisions are based solely on academic merit. These scholarships are renewable for 6 consecutive semesters (i.e., 3 academic years) or for a period of time approved by the Department, contingent upon continuous enrollment in the MSAP program and satisfactory progress in the course of study. A student may receive a scholarship through the first semester in which he/she is enrolled in 699/799 (i.e., the scholarship no longer applies during the semester in which an Incomplete grade for 699/799 is carried over). NOTE: The number of available scholarships varies each semester, and open scholarships will be awarded to interested students based on merit. Assistantships There are a number of assistantships and part-time work experiences that are available to students enrolled in the graduate program. Most assistantships entail approximately 20 hours of work per week. NOTE: Placements are subject to the availability of openings, and the list of potential placements varies each semester.

Some examples of assistantships we offer are: Psychology Department Assistantship: The student who receives this assistantship serves as the front desk assistant in the Psychology Department.
