Its important before applying to graduate school to decide exactly what type of program you wish to enter. Say you are interested in Counseling Psychology; some programs specialize in vocational development, others in marital and family therapy, others in college counseling center work, while others are in general mental health. You need to establish goals you want your program to address, and to seek programs with the best fit to your goals. Consulting "A Guide to Graduate Education in Psychology and Related Fields" will provide you with some information about programs. This guide is available in the library reserved reading under the department chairperson's name or in the psychology department to be used in consultation with your advisor. Another area of information is the faculty at Concordia.
Below is a list of faculty and the graduate school where they received training. We also are acquainted with a large number of other institutions.
- Dr. Albert Bartz U. of North Dakota and Arizona
- Dr. Mark Covey Washington State University
- Dr. Mark Krejci Notre Dame
- Dr. Susan Larson McMaster University
- Dr. Lisa Sethre-Hofstad U. of New Mexico
Program directors at various graduate schools tell me that they are impressed with students who appear to be very familiar with their program.
