The Certificate Program consists of 18 credits. These include 4 core courses from the Psychology program in Assessment, Interviewing, Abnormal Psychology, and Counseling; and 2 electives from a list of approved courses outside Psychology.
To obtain the Certificate, you must also have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 for the 6 courses (above) and submit a portfolio for review and approval by one of the two faculty advisors (Aaron Carlstrom or Michael Gurtman).
For core courses taken before Fall 2004 (the introduction of the program), relevant portfolio items may be lacking and so will not be required (although, if still available, they should be included).
You should meet with a faculty advisor (either Aaron Carlstrom or Michael Gurtman) soon after filing your paperwork for entrance to the program (i.e., submitting a Plan of Study to the Psychology Department or Advising Center). As you go through the program, meet with your advisor on a regular basis to track your progress.
