Announcing *****NEW INNOVATIVE COMMUNITY PSYCHOLOGY PHD PROGRAM at NATIONAL-LOUIS UNIVERSITY IN CHICAGO*************
National-Louis University Continues to Accept applications for their Community Psychology PHD program for the Spring (April 2009) and Fall (September 2009) cohorts.
Students who enter this program will gain skills to enable them to work within community settings to enhance wellness, build a greater sense of community, and address social problems. Common research topics include, but are not limited to, affordable housing, urban education, child abuse, substance abuse, and violence and crime.
Students who compete National-Louis' PhD in community psychology will be equipped with the program development, evaluation, advocacy, and collaborative research skills to support community-based organizations, social service agencies, and government in their attempts to address pressing social problems.
Students will understand how to view individuals in the context of family, community, and society. They will also more completely understand the role of individuals in community and organizational change. Students will also be trained to write grants and work across disciplines in preparation for jobs inside and outside of academia.
This program is UNIQUE because it offers all of the following:
* Night Classes for Working Adults
* A Cohort Model (to help build community and social support among classmates)
* A Full-time Doctoral Program flexible enough to allow students to retain or obtain full-time employment while completing the degree
* An environment that values life experiences as much as academic background and test scores
* Internship opportunities that are deeply integrated into the coursework
* A curriculum designed to be completed more quickly than traditional daytime programs
* Later Application Deadlines than most Doctoral Programs
