Degree Overview

One of the cornerstones of the program is a yearlong research project in which students first conduct a thorough literature review, design a research study, and have it approved by the Institutional Review Board. Next, students implement their proposed project by recruiting participants, collecting and analyzing data, and writing up a final research report. In addition, students must complete a practicum requirement that engages students in the real-world application of skills. Students may choose to complete their practicum in field settings, teaching, or research.
