5 UNIVERSITY HISTORY Martin University was founded with the name of Martin Center College by the Reverend Boniface Hardin and Sister Jane Schilling, in The founding was in response to research indicating that minorities, adults, and low-income persons were not adequately served by institutions of higher learning. The barriers to higher education for these persons often were job requirements (including shifts and work times), family responsibilities, age, health, failure in another institution (for reasons other than lack of ability), transportation difficulties, or the myriad of other problems associated with the obligations of life. At the same time, the changing workplace was making demands that employees seek more education, and many jobs required a university degree. Martin Center College was incorporated on April 20, 1979, in the state of Indiana as an institution of higher learning, and it enrolled its first seven students. In 1980, the College applied for and received candidacy status with the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. In February of 1987, the NCA Commission on Institutions of Higher Education granted regional accreditation to the College. The original campus, encompassing four buildings on North College Avenue, is known as the College Avenue Campus, primarily housing Martin Center, Inc. The main campus, the Avondale Campus, was opened in 1987; it is located two blocks west of Sherman Drive off 22nd Street within view of U.S It comprises the new Education Building, the Andrew J. Brown Building, classrooms, bookstore, and a study area for students. In 1990, the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools granted Martin University permission to offer master's degrees in Community Psychology and Urban Ministry Studies. The College became Martin University in The University derives its name from the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Saint Martin de Porres, two Martins who cared about the needs of people; especially poor people; physically, spiritually, mentally, and intellectually. MISSION STATEMENT The University's mission is to provide excellence in educating and developing all students, with expertise in serving and empowering low-income, minority and adult learners, in a healthy and collegiate environment. Martin University offers baccalaureate and master's degrees. The University recognizes that students vary in their personal circumstances, work environments, career goals, prior learning experiences, and educational needs. These factors are taken into consideration so that equal educational opportunity may become a reality for all who wish to pursue a degree. Martin University does not restrict learning to the usual age span, time frame, or learning spaces of traditional higher education. The program is student-centered, with each degree individually planned to meet the educational and career goals of the student. The specific degree, i.e., Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Master of Arts, or Master of Science is determined by the student's overall plan. Martin stands ready to serve community needs with educational and service programs. Community Psychology Graduate Course Catalog 5

Martin University Psychology Department Graduate Program in Community Psychology The Community Psychology Graduate Program's mission is to provide a contemporary curriculum in a healthy and collegiate environment to students seeking advanced education in the mental health counseling profession. The curriculum is based on Indiana state guidelines and provides students with the academic component necessary for state licensure as a mental health counselor (i.e., LMHC). Students completing all program requirements will be conferred the degree of Masters of Science (MS). The graduate program in Community Psychology is academically structured to develop professional level mental health counseling skills. Graduates will be able to perform in a variety of community settings where mental health counseling skills are used (e.g., addiction facilities, public and private mental health counseling centers, correctional facilities, inpatient psychiatric units). The program's course content and experiential components incorporate a multi-cultural orientation to psychology. Upon degree completion, the graduate will be prepared to enter the professional work force or continue graduate education toward a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) or a Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.). This is not a general Masters of Psychology Program. It is specifically tailored for those who want to enter the mental health professions. Student Learning Outcomes for the Community Psychology Graduate Program The Community Psychology Graduate Program has outlined several learning outcomes students are expected to demonstrate upon completion of the program. More specifically, students will be able to: 1. Recite major theories and concepts associated with normal and abnormal human development and personality processes. 2. Apply individual counseling, group counseling, and consultation techniques appropriate Community Psychology Graduate Course Catalog 9

10 for entry level mental health counseling positions. 3. Apply techniques associated with career decision-making and life choices. 4. Apply individual and group assessment techniques. 5. Apply research methodology and statistical analysis skills. 6. Recite major facts and concepts associated with the foundations and history of mental health counseling, professional credentialing, and organizations associated with mental health counseling. 7. Demonstrate ethical behavior and professionalism. 8. Apply concepts associated with the contextual dimensions of mental health counseling and community-based interventions. 9. Take into consideration trends in a multicultural society, appreciate diversity, tolerate ambiguity, and reflect other values that are the underpinnings of mental health counseling as a discipline. 10. Demonstrate critical thinking skills, effective communication, and technological literacy. Admission to the Program Individuals interested in pursuing graduate study in Community Psychology at Martin University must have earned a Bachelor's Degree from an accredited program of study with a minimum GPA of 2.8. In certain circumstances, however, a lower GPA may be acceptable. An undergraduate major in Psychology is preferred but not required. Applicants will need to complete the initial application process with the Office of Admissions. This includes: 1. Completing an application form and paying an application fee. 2. Having all prior official college transcripts forwarded by mail from all prior universities (whether degree conferring or not) directly to Martin University's Admissions Office. a. Unofficial transcripts will not be accepted. b. Hand carried transcripts will not be accepted. c. Missing transcripts will result in a delay in processing the application. d. Martin University students may request that official transcripts be sent through interoffice mail rather than through the USPS. 3. Having three typed, signed, and dated letters of recommendation from professional or academic persons who can comment on the applicant's ability to successfully complete graduate level work sent by mail directly from those individuals to the Office of Admissions. a. Hand carried letters will not be accepted. b. ed letters will not be accepted unless sent in PDF form, signed and dated, to the Admissions Office. 4. Submitting a 500-word typed personal essay. The personal essay should address why the applicant wishes to pursue a mental health counseling graduate degree, why the applicant wishes to pursue graduate study at Martin University, and a description of the applicant's personal and professional goals. a. The personal essay will be evaluated on "Goodness of Fit" with the goals of the program. b. The personal essay will be evaluated for logical reasoning, writing style, and professionalism. When the applicant's packet of application materials is complete, the Office of Admissions will forward the completed packet to the Chairperson in the Psychology Department. Following the department's review of applications by the selection committee, a decision will be made regarding acceptance into the graduate Community Psychology program. Some applicants may be contacted for a formal interview with members of the selection committee before a decision Community Psychology Graduate Course Catalog 10

11 is made. Applicants will receive notification of their acceptance status soon after a decision is made. Applicants should expect to receive this notification within two weeks of the completion of their application packet. A notification of Full Acceptance indicates the applicant has met all criteria to be admitted as a graduate student in the Community Psychology program. The new student will be assigned a graduate faculty mentor whose job will be to advise the student regarding degree planning and course selection. Once the student has met with his or her mentor, the student may enroll in graduate courses. Notification of Provisional Acceptance indicates the applicant is deficient in some of the criteria required for full acceptance into the Community Psychology graduate program. In such cases, students are allowed to take graduate level courses. In cases of provisional acceptance, the student must enroll in no more than two graduate classes each semester, for two semesters. If the student receive grades of "B" or better in each class, his or her status will be changed to full acceptance. If the student does not maintain such grades, he or she will be released from the graduate program. These courses do not apply to requirements for the graduate degree until the student achieves full-acceptance into the graduate program. Provisional-acceptance must be changed to full-acceptance within two semesters of enrollment at Martin University or the student will be released from the program. Notification of Non-Acceptance status indicates the selection committee members do not believe the applicant meets the criteria necessary to successfully complete the graduate program in Community Psychology. Undergraduate Prerequisites Applicants to the graduate program must have taken an undergraduate introductory psychology course and must have passed that course with a grade of "B" or better. Students who have not met this criterion may be granted provisional acceptance status and must take an undergraduate introductory psychology course. This class must be completed with a grade of "B" or better before full acceptance into the program will be considered. The introductory psychology prerequisite course does not count toward the hours needed for the graduate degree. Students may take this introductory psychology course from any accredited institution to satisfy the prerequisite requirement. Residency Requirement and Transfer of Graduate Credit The Psychology Department has a residency requirement regarding graduate coursework. Of the 48 graduate credit hours needed to complete the coursework requirements, a minimum of 24 graduate credit hours must be earned through graduate courses offered at Martin University. The Psychology Department will consider transferring graduate credits earned in other accredited graduate programs within or outside of Martin University. Students interested in transferring graduate credit from other graduate programs must make a formal petition to the Chairperson in the Psychology Department. This entails providing in written detail what previous graduate work the student wishes to transfer and what coursework the previous work is to replace. The student will be also asked to provide relevant documents (i.e., course syllabus, possibly course textbook, copies of graded tests, official transcripts) supporting the transfer of previous graduate credit. Submitted materials will be carefully reviewed by the Psychology Department graduate faculty, and the student will be informed in writing after a decision has been made. Based on the residency requirements presented above, a maximum of 24 graduate Community Psychology Graduate Course Catalog 11

12 credit hours may be transferred to the Community Psychology graduate program. Non-License Eligible Track Students who do not intend to pursue Indiana state licensor as a Mental Health Counselor may begin the Martin University Community Psychology program in any semester and complete the basic 48-hour Community Psychology program detailed below. Students in the non-license track are not required to take the Pre-Practicum, Practicum, Internship, and Advanced Internship courses. License Eligible Track It is highly recommended students wishing to work in the applied mental health field take the License Eligible Track courses. Although this does not guarantee licensing or employment, a growing trend is that persons with Master's degrees in Psychology are becoming licensed. In the near future, it is likely that individuals with Master's degrees in Psychology, who are not licensed, will be at a disadvantage regarding mental health employment. The Community Psychology graduate program at Martin University provides the academic component for those who wish to pursue Indiana State licensing as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. (Note that 3,000 additional hours of post-graduate supervised work and passing a state-administered exam are also required by the state before a license will be granted.) Students wishing to obtain the Indiana state license as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor must complete: 1.) the 48-credit hour Community Psychology program presented below; and 2.) 12 credit hours of Practicum, Internship, and Advanced Internship discussed below. This is a total of 60 credit hours. Students must successfully complete CPY 537 Psychopathology, CPY 540 Psychological Assessment, CPY 536 Theories and Techniques of Counseling and Psychotherapy, and CPY 529 Pre-practicum classes before beginning a practical experience. Practicum and Internships Needed for Indiana Mental Health Licensure Practicum: To meet Indiana license eligibility requirements, students are required to complete a 100 hour practicum in a mental health or mental health related facilitythe practicum will include the following tasks: client assessment/intake, direct individual counseling, group counseling, consultation, guidance/development/outreach, case management, supervision, staff meetings/case conferences, and program development. Internship: To meet Indiana license eligibility requirements, the internship requires 600 hours of supervised training. The required activities during this internship are as follows: client assessment/intake, direct individual counseling, group counseling, consultation, guidance/development/outreach, case management, supervision, staff meetings/case conferences, and program development. Advanced Internship: The final educational requirement for state license eligibility is a 300-hr advanced internship. The requirements for this advanced internship are: client assessment/intake, direct individual counseling, group counseling, consultation, guidance/development/outreach, case management, supervision, staff meetings/case conferences, and program development. Students may participate in a practicum, an internship, and an advanced internship on or off campus in a variety of settings. Off-campus sites must be approved of by the Chairperson of the Community Psychology Graduate Course Catalog 12

13 Psychology Department or Practicum Coordinator. No less than one hour of individual supervision (by a state recognized supervisor) is to be provided by the agency with which the student is working, while no less than one and one-half hours of group supervision (by a state recognized supervisor) will be provided on campus at Martin University. When students have finished their practicum and internships they should have, at a minimum, the state-required 1000 hours of clinical experience and 100 hours of individual supervision. It is noted Practicum, Internship, and Advanced Practicum courses cannot be substituted for any Core Course presented below; nor do they count as an elective course. Professional demeanor and behavior are considered to be paramount in this program. If a student is dismissed from one Practicum, Internship, or Advanced Internship, that student will be offered additional coaching and training to remediate any missing skills. A student who is dismissed from two Practicum, Internship, or Advanced Internship sites (in any combination) will be dismissed from the licensing program. While it is recognized that sometimes a professional counseling placement may not be a "good fit," dismissal from two such placements indicates that the student is not prepared for professional experience. Students will be permitted to complete their MS degree through the non-licensing track, but will not be placed in another counseling experience through Martin University's program. Such situations will be decided on a case-by-case basis, as they arise, at the combined discretion of the Department Chair and the University's Clinical Experience Supervisor. Policies for the Graduate Program in Community Psychology The following policies are presented here so the graduate student may be aware of them and know what procedures to follow if a problem arises. Community Psychology Graduate Program Expectations Acceptance in the Community Psychology Master's Program is contingent upon agreement to the following expectations. 1. Students will follow the rules and regulations outlined in the current Martin University Student Handbook. 2. Students will comply with all requirements set forth in this document, the Martin University Community Psychology Graduate Program Handbook. 3. Students will be open to and respectful of constructive feedback provided by instructors, supervisors, thesis committee members, Department Chairs and Vice-Chairs, mentors, and other individuals within and outside of Martin University who are involved in graduate students' academic endeavors. 4. Students will take required courses by the instructor assigned to teach the course. 5. Students will retake all coursework in which a grade lower than a "B" has been recorded. 6. Students will conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the behavioral and ethical standards of graduate students and mental health professionals. Failure to adhere to any of these expectations may result in disciplinary action against the student, including possible dismissal from the Community Psychology Graduate Program. Evaluation of Progress in the Graduate Program Satisfactory Academic Progress Community Psychology Graduate Course Catalog 13

14 Martin University graduate students are expected to maintain satisfactory academic progress (SAP) during their matriculation at the University. SAP is evaluated in two ways, cumulative grade point average (GPA) and cumulative academic progress. In order to maintain SAP, all students must satisfy both the minimum cumulative GPA and minimum cumulative academic progress requirements established by the University. A detailed discussion of the specific cumulative GPA and cumulative academic progress requirements is presented below. Cumulative GPA Graduate students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 during each semester. This policy applies to both degree-seeking and non-degree seeking students enrolled in graduate-level courses at the university. All graduate-level courses taken at Martin University in which letters grades of A, B, C, D, and F are awarded count towards the cumulative GPA. Graduate courses with a Pass (P) or Non-Pass (NP) do not count towards the cumulative GPA. Graduate courses in which the student Withdrew (W) or received an Incomplete (I) do not count towards the cumulative GPA. If a student retakes a graduate-level course, the resulting grade from the second time the course was taken will count towards the cumulative GPA, unless upon taking the course a second time the student withdrew (W) from the course or received an Incomplete (I) in the course. In this instance, the resulting grade from the first time the course remains, counting towards the cumulative GPA. If a student receives a lower grade in the retaken course than received during the first time the course was taken, the lower grade will count towards the cumulative GPA. Grades associated with courses taken at another institution and transferred to Martin University do not count towards the cumulative GPA. Cumulative Academic Progress Graduate Students are expected to successfully complete at least two-thirds (67% rounded) of the cumulative attempted credit hours in which they are enrolled. A successfully completed credit hour is defined as a credit hour associated with a course in which the final awarded grade was an A, B, or P. An unsuccessfully completed credit hour is defined as a credit hour associated with a course in which the final awarded grade was a C, D, F, NP, I or W. Please note that while final marks of Non-Pass (NP), Withdrawn (W), and Incompletes (I) do not count towards the cumulative GPA, they do count towards cumulative academic progress. In addition, graduate-level course work transferred to Martin University (identified as "T" on the transcript) that counts towards a student's degree also counts towards cumulative credit hours attempted and cumulative credit hours completed. Graduate-level coursework transferred in to Martin University that does not count towards a student's degree does not count towards the cumulative credit hours attempted or cumulative credit hours completed. In general, Martin University only transfers credit that counts towards a degree. It is recognized however, that students sometimes change majors, and previous transferred credit may no longer count towards that major/degree. Because of these instances, any student who has credit transferred to Martin University must have this transfer credit re-evaluated if he/she changes his/her graduate program. The SAP requirements for undergraduates and graduate students discussed above are summarized in the following table: Time Period for Evaluating SAP SAP is evaluated at the end of each fall and spring academic semester for each student by the faculty advisor. In evaluating SAP, both cumulative GPA and cumulative academic progress as defined above are examined. A student is considered to be achieving satisfactory progress when he/she meets the minimum cumulative GPA and minimum cumulative academic progress Community Psychology Graduate Course Catalog 14

15 requirements. A student is considered making unsatisfactory academic progress if either the minimum cumulative GPA requirement and/or the minimum cumulative academic progress requirement are not met at the end of each academic semester in which he/she is enrolled. Consequences for Failing to Maintain SAP Martin University has a three-step process to be followed when a student does not meet the SAP requirements. This three-step process includes a warning status, probation status, and suspension/dismissal status. Each of these conditions is presented below. SAP Warning Status As a first step, any student who does not achieve satisfactory academic progress (per the minimum cumulative GPA and minimum cumulative academic progress requirements presented above) in a given semester will be placed on SAP Warning status. SAP Warning status may be assigned by the faculty advisor without appeal or other action by the student. The advisor will notify the SAP Committee when a student is placed on Warning status. While on SAP Warning status, the student has one academic semester in which he/she is enrolled to achieve satisfactory academic progress. If the student meets the SAP requirements at the end of the following semester, the SAP Warning is rescinded. In these cases, the advisor will notify the student and the SAP Committee in writing. No further action is required. SAP Probation Status Students who fail to meet the requirements of SAP by the end of any given semester for which they were in SAP warning status, will be placed on probation. As part of the probation, the student will be required to follow an academic plan developed by the student and his/her advisor designed to move the student into making satisfactory academic progress. During the Probation semester, the academic plan must be signed by the student and advisor and received by the SAP Committee by the end of the Drop/Add period. The original is to be placed in the student's file by the advisor. Copies of the document will be given to the student and forwarded to the SAP Committee. The student will be on SAP Probation for one academic semester in which he/she is enrolled. At the end of the semester in which the student is on SAP probation, the student must meet the requirements of SAP to avoid dismissal from the University. If the student achieves SAP requirements, at the end of the semester, the SAP probation will be rescinded by the SAP Committee. The student will be notified by his/her advisor. SAP Academic Dismissal/Suspension The University will dismiss/suspend a student if the student's completion rate and/or cumulative GPA do not return to a satisfactory level after the SAP Warning status and SAP Probation status have been applied. The SAP Committee will give a student a written notice of academic dismissal/suspension if all of the following conditions are met: The student has been given a SAP Warning. SAP Warning status was not rescinded. The student has been placed on SAP Probation. SAP Probation has not been rescinded. Students receiving a dismissal from the university from the SAP Committee may appeal the dismissal. The appeal process will consist of a written statement from the student to the SAP Committee along with relevant supporting documents, indicating the challenges the student is having in achieving SAP and the actions to be taken by the student to achieve SAP. It is the discretion of the SAP Committee to accept or deny the appeal. The SAP Committee's appeal determination will be provided in writing to the student, the student's advisor, and the Vice Community Psychology Graduate Course Catalog 15

16 President of Academic Affairs. Students who do not initiate an appeal process will be dismissed from the University and must follow the reinstatement procedures for dismissed students discussed below to be re-admitted into the University. Students receiving a dismissal from the SAP Committee after filing an appeal with that committee may submit a final appeal directly to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. He/She will review the issues involved, and may request an interview with the student. After gathering information and evaluating the SAP Committee decision and the student information the Vice President for Academic Affairs will render a final decision. There are no further appeals after this. If the Academic Vice President allows the student to continue, he/she will meet with the advisor to develop a plan to work with the student. The advisor must then monitor the student's progress and inform the Vice President for Academic Affairs of the student progress. Failure to follow the developed plan will result in immediate dismissal. Successful completion of the plan will result in a recommendation from the Vice President to the SAP Committee to remove the student from probation. Reinstatement Following Dismissal Students are not eligible for reinstatement for at least three semesters after a SAP dismissal. To be reinstated after SAP dismissal, a student must present evidence to the SAP Committee that he or she is ready and able to make satisfactory progress. The SAP Committee is responsible for acting on requests for reinstatement after academic dismissal. Reinstatement is a formal process in which the student petitions the University in writing for reinstatement. As part of this petition, the student must provide evidence that he/she can achieve academic success and maintain satisfactory academic progress. If a student is reinstated, the student would be required to follow terms and conditions outlined by the SAP Committee that promote future academic success and SAP. The student must agree to these conditions in writing before being reinstated to the University. If the SAP committee denies reinstatement, the student may appeal the decision to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. After hearing the evidence, the Vice President for Academic Affairs will render a decision on reinstatement. This decision is final. A student denied reinstatement by the SAP Committee and Vice President for Academic Affairs may petition for reinstatement to the University the following semester, using the same process contained in this subsection. Community Psychology Program Completion Students must complete the Community Psychology Graduate Program within FIVE ACADEMIC YEARS of their acceptance into the program. Failure to do so will result in automatic dismissal from the graduate Community Psychology program. Such students are welcome to reapply to the program, but it must be understood that they must retake the following courses - Program Evaluation, Psychological Assessment, Psychopathology, and Introduction to Community Psychology. Students who return after an absence of one academic year or longer, who have only to complete their thesis, must sign up for a one-credit Thesis Continuation course (CPY 701, CPY 702, CPY 703, CPY 704), for a total of four semesters. Ethical and Professional Behavior Expectations Community Psychology graduate students are expected to engage in ethical and professional behavior in their interactions with University staff, faculty, students, and other individuals they have contact with in the course of their studies at the University (e.g., clients, practicum site Community Psychology Graduate Course Catalog 16

17 supervisors/personnel). Unprofessional and/or unethical behavior will not be tolerated. A graduate student must demonstrate the capacity to rise to a level of faculty trust typically placed on graduate students. This trust involves an assumption of academic honesty on the part of the student. Cheating and plagiarism should not be a concern with graduate students. If a student is found cheating or plagiarizing, disciplinary action, which may include dismissal from the program, will be taken. Students showing such behaviors may be subject to disciplinary procedures. Disciplinary procedures may include placing the student on probation by the Psychology Department (separate from any probation that may be stipulated by the Martin University). Such probationary action will require that the student satisfactorily meet criteria for resolving areas of concern in the designated time frame as detailed in a letter issued by the Psychology Department. If the student fails to satisfactorily complete the requirements set forth by the Psychology Department, the Psychology Department may dismiss the student from the Graduate Program. In certain egregious cases, the student may be dismissed from the graduate program without the benefit of a probationary period. Such cases would arise in response to the student committing a severe ethical or behavioral infraction. As graduate students in a professional program, there are both behavioral and ethical standards that require students to behave in a professional manner at all times, especially in the professional environments of the internship experience and field practicum. The professional ethics upheld by the Psychology Department at Martin University are predicated upon the ethical guidelines for the professional practice of psychology outlined by the American Psychological Association and Indiana Professional Licensing Agency. Dismissal from the Licensing Track Program As stated above, professional demeanor and behavior are considered to be paramount in this program. Students dismissed from one Practicum, Internship, or Advanced Internship site will be provided additional training, as needed, to encourage future success. Students who are dismissed from two Practicum, Internship, or Advanced Internship sites (in any combination of levels) will be dismissed from the licensing program. While it is recognized that sometimes a professional counseling placement may not be a "good fit," dismissal from two such placements constitutes an indication that the student is not yet prepared for such professional experience. Such students will be permitted to complete their MS degree through the non-licensing track, but will not be placed in another clinical experience through Martin University's program. Such situations will be decided on a case-by-case basis, as they arise, at the combined discretion of the Department Chair and the University's Clinical Experience Supervisor. Community Psychology Grievance Policies The Community Psychology Program adheres to the Martin University student grievance policy outlined in the Martin University Course Catalog. The student should refer to this policy and its procedures to address grievances. Failure to follow this policy and procedure is considered a breach of professional behavior. In brief, this policy outlines that: 1. The student should first discuss the problem with the faculty member who is noting the problem. Most problems can be worked out at this level. 2. If the faculty and student cannot resolve the problem, the student can appeal the problem to the Chairperson of the Psychology Department. In such cases, the student needs to submit a written summary of the problem to the Chairperson and make an appointment to meet and discuss the problem. If the student wishes, the faculty member Community Psychology Graduate Course Catalog 17

18 taking issue with the student may be present, or the student can meet with the Chairperson alone. If the faculty member is not in attendance at this meeting, the Chairperson will need to consult with the faculty member before forming any conclusions and offering possible mechanisms for a solution to the problem. If both the student and faculty are present, a solution may be reached during the meeting. After hearing both sides of the conflict, the Chairperson will make a decision on the issue. 3. If the student is not satisfied with the Chairperson's decision, the student can appeal the action of the Psychology Department to the Dean of School in which the Psychology Department resides. This Dean will meet with all involved parties and make a decision towards settling the problem. 4. If the student is not satisfied with the Dean's decision for resolving the problem, the student can appeal the decision to the Vice President for Academic Affairs. The decision made by the Vice President for Academic Affairs is considered final. Community Psychology Program Coursework The Community Psychology degree includes a minimum of 48 graduate credit hours and is designed to be completed in two years. The program is designed to be started in the Fall semester. However, students may be admitted and may start the beginning of any semester. Completing required core courses and electives fulfills each student's degree program. Electives are chosen according to the individual needs and interests of the student. The student's choice of electives requires approval of the student's mentor. On-going consultation between the student and the assigned mentor is expected throughout the graduate school experience. Required Core Courses The following Core Courses are required and must be passed with a grade of "B" or better. CPY 500 Introduction to Community Psychology CPY 514 Fundamentals of Counseling and Psychotherapy CPY 520 Personality CPY 524 Developmental Psychology CPY 531 Group Dynamics CPY 536 Theories and Techniques of Counseling and Psychotherapy (prerequisite to begin practicum work) CPY 537 Psychopathology (prerequisite to begin practicum work) CPY 540 Psychological Assessment (prerequisite to begin practicum work) CPY 544 Program Evaluation CPY 600 Seminar in Counseling Ethnic Minorities CPY 620 Professional Ethics CPY 630 Lifestyle and Career Development CPY 700 Thesis The completion of the Core Courses results in 39 credit hours. Taking elective courses (e.g., CPY 640 Psychopharmocology, CPY 602 Topics in Community Psychology) that are offered at various times over the academic year can fulfill the remaining nine (9) credit hours. With mentor approval, elective courses may be fulfilled by taking graduate level courses outside of the Community Psychology program (e.g., Urban Ministries). Only graduate level courses count towards the graduate program. Undergraduate courses never count towards a graduate degree. Licensing Track Additional Requirements Community Psychology Graduate Course Catalog 18

19 For those graduate students in the licensing track, the following additional courses are required and must be passed with a grade of "B" or better. CPY 529 Pre-practicum (prerequisite to begin practicum work) CPY 530 Practicum (3 Cr): 100 contact hours required CPY 534 Internship (6 Cr): 600 contact hours required CPY 595 Advanced Internship (3 Cr): 300 contact hours required Students in the licensing track program will take only two elective classes, not three. Student will meet the state criteria of 60 credit hours of graduate academic training. Two-Year Course Sequence It is suggested the entering student take courses in the following order. If the student does not adhere to this schedule, the courses will not be offered until the same semester the following year. Failure to comply with the suggested course order will increase the time the student takes to complete the degree. The suggested course order is: First Fall Semester CPY 500 Introduction to Community Psychology CPY 520 Personality (Prerequisite for CPY 536 Theories and Techniques of Counseling and Psychotherapy) CPY 537 Psychopathology (prerequisite to begin practicum work) CPY 540 Psychological Assessment (prerequisite to begin practicum work) First Spring Semester CPY 529 Pre-practicum (prerequisite to begin practicum work) (not required for non-licensing track) CPY 536 Theories and Techniques of Counseling and Psychotherapy (prerequisite to begin practicum work) CPY 544 Program Evaluation (prerequisite to begin thesis work) Elective (3 Credit Hours) First Summer Semester CPY 514 Fundamentals of Counseling and Psychotherapy CPY 530 Practicum (required for licensing track) CPY 620 Professional Ethics CPY 700 Thesis Second Fall Semester CPY 534 Internship (required for licensing track) CPY 630 Lifestyle and Career Development Elective 3 credit hours Elective 3 credit hours (not required for licensing track) Second Spring Semester CPY 524 Developmental Psychology CPY 531 Group Dynamics Community Psychology Graduate Course Catalog 19

20 CPY 595 Advanced Internship (required for licensing track) CPY 600 Seminar in Counseling Ethnic Minorities Alternative Course Sequence Students may complete the program on a part-time basis, but this will extend program participation to three years or more. There are many possible course sequence combinations for students completing the program on a part-time basis, and the faculty mentor and student will determine the optimal course sequence. Nevertheless, below is one such sequence for completing the program in three years. First Fall Semester CPY 500 Introduction to Community Psychology CPY 520 Personality (Prerequisite for CPY 536 Theories and Techniques of Counseling and Psychotherapy) First Spring Semester CPY 531 Group Dynamics CPY 536 Theories and Techniques of Counseling and Psychotherapy (prerequisite to begin practicum work) Elective 3 credit hours First Summer Semester CPY 514 Fundamentals of Counseling and Psychotherapy CPY 620 Professional Ethics Second Fall Semester CPY 537 Psychopathology (prerequisite to begin practicum work) CPY 540 Psychological Assessment (prerequisite to begin practicum work) Second Spring Semester CPY 529 Pre-practicum (prerequisite to begin practicum work) (not required for non-licensing track) CPY 544 Program Evaluation (Prerequisite for CPY 700 Thesis) Second Summer Semester CPY 530 Practicum (required for licensing track) CPY 700 Thesis Third Fall Semester CPY 534 Internship (required for licensing track) CPY 630 Lifestyle and Career Development Elective 3 credit hours Third Spring Semester Community Psychology Graduate Course Catalog 20
