Program Description:

The field of community psychology applies theories and techniques from psychology and related social sciences to the task of understanding and modifying the complex social forces that influence individual and community well-being. Accordingly, the M.A. program in community psychology provides training in current approaches to preventing and treating psychological problems, emphasizing interventions at the level of social institutions, organizations, and groups as well as the individual. Community analysis, consultation, and collaboration are addressed, in addition to program development, administration, and evaluation. Classroom study is closely integrated with supervised internships in a variety of human service organizations and community settings. Graduates assume positions of responsibility in a broad range of human service settings, such as mental health programs, youth service bureaus, community centers, child development programs, municipal services, state agencies, health care systems, community action programs and advocacy organizations.
