Program Description:

The program has been crafted to provide a sequential experience for each student from knowledge base, to skill development, to application. Two content areas are addressed: a) counseling/psychological theory and practice and b) organizational psychology (e.g. motivation of employee's leadership styles and organizational development). There is an emphasis throughout the program on the integration of theory and practice. Once students have a sound knowledge of psychological and organizational theory and appropriate skill training in the program, they obtain internship positions in line with organizational psychology. The typical placement is from 12 to 16 hours a week and runs for two academic semesters. The Philadelphia area, with a wide variety of organizations ranging from Fortune 500 to much smaller companies, is especially rich in practice possibilities. Internship sites have included the following: Asher and Company, Ltd. Bergen Briller Group, L.L.C. Fox 29—WTXF–TV Northern Light Community Center Target Corporation U.S. Postal Service—Processing and Distribution Center For most students, completion of the program will lead to employment in business organizations, consulting firms, or mental health settings as administrators.
