Undergraduate Psychology Courses Preferred by Graduate Programs
Lawson, Timothy J.; Reisinger, Debra L.; Jordan-Fleming, Mary Kay
Teaching of Psychology, v39 n3 p181-184 Jul 2012
Information about the undergraduate psychology courses preferred by graduate programs is useful for a number of purposes, including (a) advising psychology majors who are interested in graduate school, (b) undergraduate curriculum planning, and (c) examining whether graduate programs' preferences reflect national guidelines for the undergraduate psychology curriculum. The authors examined the undergraduate course preferences of U.S. psychology graduate programs (N = 548). Among Clinical/Counseling (C/C) programs, PsyD programs' course preferences were more likely than those of master's and PhD programs to reflect national undergraduate curriculum guidelines. Differences also emerged among various types of training (e.g., C/C vs. Educational/School), and these are important for advisors and students to understand. (Contains 2 tables and 2 notes.)
