The Community MA is a Non-Terminal Degree, which is earned only by students who have been admitted to the PhD program. Students are not admitted for the MA program only.
The Community program seeks to achieve four inter-related goals in training, specifically:
- Provide students with a breadth of knowledge—theoretical and applied—in community psychology.
- Provide statistical and methodological foundations in general psychology to demonstrate competence in core areas within the discipline.
- Provide skills to engage communities and contribute to new developments in the field of community psychology.
- Provide for the specific needs of the students and the communities they will serve.
