I'm currently trying to decide between two Forensic Psychology graduate programs. One is a Forensic Psychology, M.A. program and the other is a Community Psychology M.A., with a Forensic Psychology concentration. The course load for the first program is very specific to Forensic Psychology, but they do not offer any research experience. Only externship experience and the program is double the price. The Community Psychology program doesn't offer many Forensic Psychology courses (4 required for the concentration), but they do offer both internship experience and the opportunity to do a thesis and get involved in research. I'm not positive about whether I'll do a PhD yet (I probably will - Forensic or Clinical) so I don't know if I would be better off getting involved in research. Anyone else pursing a graduate degree in Forensic Psychology -- Is it more beneficial to do a concentration in Forensics with the option to do research or a program that's specific to Forensics without research?
pnguyen540 posted a topic in PsychologyI have noticed that there was not many threads or discussions about community psychology (not to confuse with clinical-community psychology). So, I would like to meet people who share the same interest, and perhaps, we can learn a thing or two about each other. Program of interest: Community Psychology Research interest: domestic violence and sexual assault Schools: Michigan State U, Georgia State U, Portland State U, CSUF and CSULB Number one worry about applying: My GRE verbal prep is below average although I have been prepping for two years, trying to squeeze every bit of words into my head. I am going to take it today and will edit the post to reflect the most current scores. Not worried about: Research experience, LOR, SOP; basically, everything else but the GRE Verbal) If you share the same research interest, maybe we could consider doing a joint study someday.
I've been accepted into UIUC's Clinical/Community Psychology PhD program, but am afraid I don't have enough insight on the experience from a grad student's POV. This is a desperate cry for help---Anyone out there know about UIUC's psychology department (i.e. the feel of it, rigor, culture, etc.) in general? Also, any helpful replies about the broader Urbana/Champaign area, the professors, the psych department, or the stipend are all welcome! Thank you
