I've applied to a couple Forensic Psyc Masters Programs and am currently waiting for responses. Does anyone know if online programs typically ask to interview? My first choice is UCI so any information on their Master of Legal and Forensic Psychology would be awesome.
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?
hygytsw posted a topic in PsychologyHi all, I am applying to Denver's forensic psychology MA program. One of their essay prompts requests the following: Describe someone you know who has engaged in behavior of which you disapprove. How has this behavior affected your view of this person? How has your relationship with this person changed? How do you understand your reactions? I am tempted to write an essay about a patient I have worked with (without disclosing their name, age, crime, HIPPA type violations), but I am worried this will come across as unprofessional. I have not included anything about patients in my other essays but this prompt seems to be looking for a level of self/professional disclosure that I have not seen in other applications, so I am unsure of how to proceed. Does anyone have experience with essays like this? AND: If I do not write about a patient, would it be unprofessional to write about a coworker who I discovered have multiple DUIs, and how that affected my view of their work and professional judgement? Thanks!
