The heavens have parted
and somehow someway UW has just created a new masters program for psych. THEY HAVE NEVER HAD A MASTERS PROGRAM FOR PSYCH. This is EXAAAACTLY what I have been looking for I am so excited, I’m like, squealing. Look at this:
“For those considering pursuing a Ph.D., the program can help clarify your graduate school trajectory and strengthen your qualifications for psychology, social work or nursing Ph.D. programs.“
How can this be happening? How is this so perfect, so meant to be? :D I wonder if it’s what I should work towards? I think I ultimately want to apply for my PhD at UW, but the program is COMPETITIVE and super intimidating, and I feel soooo scared and uncertain about all that…. But this? This feels more my speed. Maybe I can actually do it? AHHHH I feel so excited that this is now an option!!!!!! OMG!!!
The other school I was thinking of applying to is really expensive and also not accredited by APA so I’ve been told it’s risky and maybe not a good school for that reason, but I get mixed advice bc I’ve talked with an alumni/professor there that really loves it and I met with an advisor there and it seemed like a cool school, very community and social justice focused… But that mixed advice has got me scared about it.
Another school nearby that I was hoping would work is christian based… And considering that psych is such a feelings heavy field, I don’t think I could ever be apart of any kind of religious based program. I don’t agree with a lot of that kind of thinking and I feel like it would inevitably bleed into the training (even though they say it wouldn’t).
Having UW as an option now for masters, omg!! I can’t even express how elated I feel right now, lol. omg omg omg. ⸂⸂⸜(രᴗര๑)⸝⸃⸃
Edit: Forgot to mention, it’s adolescent focused!!!! THAT IS MY FIELD!!! It could have easily been addiction or marriage and family, but it’s not, IT’S CHILD AND ADOLESCENT!! ✯⸜(ّᶿ̷ധّᶿ̷)⸝✯
