Policies External Transfer of Credit Prior graduate course work, if within the area of study, may be eligible for transfer or waiver of credit. Students accepted to the program may petition by submitting a Petition for Transfer/Waiver of Credit ** and all required documentation. The decision to accept transfer credit is solely that of the school and reserves the right to require satisfactory performance on an examination before awarding a transfer of credit. Satisfactory completion of a competency examination is required before transfer of credit is awarded when the course in question has been taken more than five years prior to admission. No credit will be transferred for course work that is more than 10 years old. Transfer of credits is subject to the following conditions: Transferred course credit is restricted to graduate level courses from a recognized, regionally accredited graduate degree granting institution.

However, waiver of courses does not reduce the total number of hours of course work to be completed at The Chicago School; it permits students to substitute course work as approved by the Department Chair. An international student who has completed an undergraduate course(s) that, in the judgment of the Department Chair, is equivalent to a required course at The Chicago School, may apply for the course to be waived. M.A. ExCEL students may seek a waiver for a total of nine credit hours. Those seeking both a waiver and transfer of credit hours may not exceed a total of nine credit hours

Satisfactory progress semester hours do not include waiver or transfer credit hours. No student will be permitted to take less than three semester hours of course work over a Fall, Spring or Summer 16 week semester (or two 8 week sessions) unless that student has fewer than three semester hours of course work remaining or is on an approved Leave of Absence. In order to receive financial aid, however, you must be at least half-time for the semester. Credit Hours per Year and Program Length The maximum duration of Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology ExCEL track program is five years. Students must complete, at minimum, nine semester hour credits each calendar year.

This includes course work, and any clinical training (practicum/internship), thesis/dissertation, and/or applied research project required by your program of study. After all final grades are posted for the student s final semester; a degree audit will be conducted to verify degree completion. The degree is then conferred, posted to the transcript, and a diploma is issued. The Program Philosophy The program model reflects the educational goals and competencies adopted by the National Invitational Conference on Education and Training in Law and Psychology: the Villanova Conference. The curriculum exposes students to the theoretical principles, scientific research, and clinical practice skills that enable students to assume professional responsibilities in a variety of forensic settings. The program endeavors to be flexible in order to adapt course content to reflect developments in the field and emphasizes critical thinking, sensitivity to ethical principles, the role of personal values and cultural diversity. Ethics Students are expected to adhere to the American Psychological Association s (APA) "Ethical Principles of Psychologists" and the American Counseling Association (ACA) Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. In addition, students must develop a working knowledge of the standards, as well as specialty guidelines for Forensic Psychologist (American Psychology Law Society and Division 41 APA) and legal statutes pertaining to the domain of Forensic Psychology during their course of study. Students shall not obtain employment beyond the scope of their training in psychology and shall not use titles governed by licensure statutes, unless so licensed by the State. A student may not establish or continue psychotherapy with any Faculty member under any circumstances. A student who fails to adhere to this policy or otherwise fails to demonstrate the appropriate ethics required for practice in the field of professional psychology is subject to discipline

5 Objectives The program has three key objectives: 1. To prepare master s level specialists to bring psychology into the legal and public policy arena in an ethical, academically informed, and research-based manner. 2. To prepare master s level specialists to contribute services (e.g., evaluation of risk assessment, supervision, assessment, intervention and treatment planning) to address problems and issues of various populations. 3. To provide students with the necessary interpersonal, behavioral, academic and technical skills for application in a variety of forensic settings. Forensic Psychology Program Competencies In accord with The Chicago School s plan for assessing student learning and, in concert with institutional Academic goals of Scholarship, Diversity, Professional Behavior and Ethics, and Professional Practice, the M.A. Forensic Psychology program has articulated the following key competencies: Scholarship Research and Evaluation: The ability to consume, critique and produce scholarly work i.e. traditional research, teaching, lecturing, program evaluation and, advocacy for social and legal policy decisions. Diversity Individual and Cultural Differences: The ability to appreciate, understand and work with individual and group differences across racial, ethnic, gender, age, disability, social class, sexual orientation and religious boundaries. Professional Behavior and Ethics Ethics: The ability to comprehend and to apply ethical principles and professional standards to all aspects of one s professional practice and endeavors. Professional Practice Relationship: The ability to develop and maintain appropriate, productive working alliances with clients and with other professionals and co-workers. Assessment: The ability to collect and integrate relevant information from multiple sources in order to facilitate individual or group description, categorization, conceptualization and prediction. Intervention: The ability to utilize theoretical constructs and techniques in the implementation of intervention strategies to meet the needs of diverse populations. Forensic Proficiency: The ability to utilize one s knowledge of the forensic literature and sub-specialty practice guidelines to effectively and ethically deliver professional services to both victim and offender populations in community-based and forensic settings. ExCEL Track Option The ExCEL track allows students to learn about new theories, concepts, and best practices relevant to their careers, and apply that learning in the workplace while earning graduate certificates and degrees. ExCEL courses are based on: An instructional environment which accepts students as mature learners and allows them to bring their experience and expertise into the class Readings and materials which expose students to new theories, concepts, and best practices relevant to their careers Classmates to provide a broader range of workplace experiences and provide multiple perspectives on workplace problems, situations, and challenges An experienced faculty member who is a personal mentor-guide-facilitator-resource for students The MA Forensic Psychology, ExCEL track is blended, combining online and on-campus experiences to provide greater access to the program for working adults as well as instruction most appropriate to course learning goals. Seven of the courses are online, three are blended and include an on-campus weekend session as well as online course work. The Applied Research Project includes completion of five online independent studies together with required interactions with the student s advisor which provide ongoing support and structure for the Project throughout the program. This track is accelerated and offered in two eight-week terms each semester. A typical student schedule would include one three semester-credit course per term as well as one, one-credit independent study per semester, totaling seven semester credit hours per semester. The program may, therefore, be completed in five semesters or approximately 20 months

The Certificate in Applied Forensic Psychology provides students knowledge about psychology and mental health to questions and issues relating to law and the legal system. The program consists of three graduate level courses and is open to those holding a bachelor s degree in any discipline. Designed for professionals seeking to broaden and add depth to their ability to apply knowledge about forensic psychology this certificate would be appropriate for law enforcement professionals, corrections professionals, victim assistance professionals, court professionals, treatment facilities professionals, and criminal justice or social service agency professionals.
