Just want to pick the brains of people that chose a Research doctoral program in Psychology, and those that chose a Clinical/Counseling program. I find myself much more interested in research than therapy in my Clinical Psychology Master's program. If I did a Clinical PhD I would want to get involved in research afterwards. I am very interested in research and testing, and doing some therapy but not really making that my focus. I would prefer to be licensed in Psychology just so I have the flexibility in career options. Thoughts? Rationale for clinical vs. research focus?
I am currently a a Master's student in the Sociology department at WVU. I am looking to apply to PhD programs for next fall (Fall 2017). I prefer qualitative methods (ethnography, urban sociology) and would like to find a program with a strong qualitative focus. Google is only decently helpful, and I hate trying to use 'official' rankings as a unit of measurement. Does anyone have any suggestions on programs and/or faculty? Thanks!!
As an undergraduate student entering my senior year, I have an unfortunate amount of questions regarding the application process for doctoral programs in English literature. Having written extensively on Joyce's Ulysses, I'm primarily interested in the relationship between narrative theory and postcolonial studies, with an emphasis on 20th century modernism. So, then, does anyone know of some top tier doctoral programs known for research in postcolonialism, narratology, and/or modernism? I'm also interested in American postmodern literature—e.g. Thomas Pynchon, Don DeLillo, and David Foster Wallace—but haven't come into contact with many reputable programs renown for that mode of contemporary scholarship, so guidance there would certainly help, too. On a semi-unrelated note, I'm also curious if those of you who have been accepted to top tier (or second-tier) programs 1) applied in the fall prior to graduation, 2) applied in the fall following graduation, 3) applied during an MA program, or 4) applied following the completion of an MA program. Any response to these questions and concerns would be greatly appreciated - thanks!
