Westfield State to hold graduate psychology and applied behavior analysis open house

The Division of Graduate and Continuing Education (DGCE) at Westfield State University will host a graduate psychology and applied behavior analysis open house on Wednesday, September 16, at 6 p.m. in the Horace Mann Center.

 Individuals considering careers such as behavior analysts, clinicians, family and marriage counselors, and guidance or adjustment counselors should consider attending this open house to find out how a graduate degree can help them attain one of these positions.

 Westfield State University offers a 60-credit graduate program in psychology with specialized tracks in school guidance counseling, school adjustment counseling (non-licensure), or mental health counseling, with an optional concentration in forensic mental health counseling. Westfield State University also offers a 48-credit master of arts in applied behavior analysis program to individuals who work, or aspire to work, in a number of different settings, such as schools, including regular and special education classrooms, business and industry, healthcare, and other community-based settings.

 “Many graduate students have familial and career responsibilities that must be prioritized when it comes to furthering their education,” said Jessica Tansey, acting director, Program Development and Outreach, of the Division of Graduate and Continuing Education at Westfield State University. “DGCE at Westfield State is aware of and sensitive to the challenges that often accompany continuing school.”

 To recognize the diverse needs of its students, Westfield State University offers many accommodations, including late afternoon and evening courses and two summer sessions.

 In addition to learning more about the programs and each concentration, prospective students will have the opportunity to speak with the program coordinator, advisors, and faculty. The DGCE will also speak to attendees about the application process. All individuals who attend this Open House will have the $50 application fee waived.
