  1. Hey everyone -- Just browsing this forum has been helpful as there is a lot of bad or misleading information online about various psychology/social work/counseling programs. I was hoping others could help with some advice about my specific objective and situation. Application competitiveness aside, I'd appreciate any thoughts about/answers to the questions below. Thank you in advance! Objective: I'd like to become a clinical psychotherapist, transitioning out of my work in public health (social determinants of health, more specifically) to direct clinical practice. Situation: Ideally, I would like to complete a master's or doctoral program part-time (nights/weekend/etc., or distance) while maintaining full-time employment/income. I have lived in DC for 7 years and would like to remain here for the entirety of my program. I already hold a Master of Public Health from Emory University (Policy Concentration) and a Bachelor of Arts from Penn State University (English/Writing and Health Policy) I have been told by several therapist friends (ranging from MSWs to PhDs and MDs) to pursue a (second) master's degree as that is all that is needed to practice as a therapist. They have all emphasized that you can earn a significant amount in private practice, especially in a market like D.C. I would qualify as a non-traditional student in that my professional and academic background are outside of social work, psychology, etc. I have worked in health policy (4 years total, including some mental health policy work and nonprofit board service) as well as entrepreneurship (founded and ran a startup for 3 years). Questions: Are there any venerable part-time and/or online PsyD or PhD programs that I should consider? If I could complete a doctoral program in a reasonable timeframe (likely a PsyD given my primary focus on practice), that might be preferable to a master's programs. The challenge I've seen is that most of the programs I've researched require full-time students (i.e. no evenings or weekend classes). Among the various MSW/MA/MS programs in clinical social work, mental health counseling, etc., do you have any recommendation if my end goal is clinical psychotherapy? Given my above objective and situation, do you have any other thoughts about vetting programs for fit (i.e. things to look for as I research programs)? Is there any possibility that I could acquire merit-based aid for master's programs like these or a part-time PsyD? Given my location in DC, are there any specific programs/departments you would recommend? Again, many thanks for any help you can provide!
  2. Hi all, I've committed to UT Austin's PhD program in English (yay!), and I am so excited to head down in August. Top of mind right now is finding and securing housing, and with that, concerns about budget/affordability. The program funding is modest at best, so I know that I'll have to find some other work to supplement my stipend. I'm wondering if anyone can offer suggestions about reasonable part-time or contract work for grad students? I know it's suggested we don't devote too much time to other work, as coursework and TA'ing already demand a lot and the priority, but this is more of a need than a choice... I've obviously thought about tutoring (any good programs/companies to look at in particular)? I am also leaving in job in non-profit development, so some kind of proposal and grant-writing would be really great. Any thoughts?
  3. Hi, I am a foreigner working full-time in New York, holding L1b visa. I would like to apply for Columbia's Master of Science in Computer Science as part-time student. But I am not sure whether they accept part-time students for foreigners, and I don't see such choices in the application system. Does anyone know about this information? Thanks
  4. Young female professional here in late 20's looking to get an MBA after graduating with an MPP this spring. I'll be moving back to the Baltimore D.C. area and was looking for advice on potential (worthwhile) MBA programs. I have great undergrad scores (3.8) and 5 years work experience with prestigious gov. fellowship. I think the MBA will help advance my network and move me into more competitive positions. Would a part-time/evening MBA program such as Hopkins, Smith, Loyola be worth considering? I'm not looking to go back to school full-time. Thanks in advance!
  5. Hey everyone! I'll be attending BC in the fall to get my MSW. I'm very excited because it means taking out minimal loans as long as I find a part time job. I'm not worried about being able to juggle school work and class work (as I am juggling 35 hours a week at a preschool, 10 at a crisis hotline, an internship and 9 academic credits currently). However, I currently work in a field that is loosely related to social work as I'm working with children. I would most prefer to work in a field that is also related during my masters program in Boston, but it doesn't seem like child care will be possible with how my weekly schedule is going to look and the fact that I don't plan on taking my car. This leads to my question. Those of you who are currently in an MSW program or are planning to attend one while working part time, what kinds of jobs are you going to be looking for? i have worked as a server and other unrelated type jobs before, but I would really like to stay within the field if at all possible. I'm sure there are other jobs out there other than childcare that are related to the field. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
  6. Does anyone know what the acceptance rate for the part-time MSW program at USC is? I am applying to the online program, but I was told that the part time program is less competitive and the minimum GPA requirement is a 2.5. Has anyone had experience with this and know what the chances are for someone with less than a 3.0, for the part-time program?
  7. Hello all! I'm starting a graduate program at USC in a couple weeks and I am trying to figure out how many credits is too many? So far I am taking 12 units (4 online in a subject I am familiar with). Although it has recently been brought to my attention that I only need 8 classes to complete this program. Meaning - two semesters with 4 classes would complete the program. Now I am not made of money and USC is very expensive. I'm starting to think this isn't such a bad idea. However, I am the first in my family to go to graduate school so I am a little unsure of what this program holds for me. Another one of my thoughts being - if I take 3 classes this semester and 4 classes next semester, do I really want to go back to school in the fall for one course? Not really... Also this program does not require research - only coursework. Please let me know if you think 2 on-campus classes and 2 online classes is too much for one graduate semester Best of luck to everyone starting school in the next couple weeks!
