Career mentorship and preparation.
Alongside traditional course curricula, the Master’s program has a special emphasis on helping students achieve their individual goals through close faculty mentoring. Whether students are interested in pursuing a career in clinical work or research, or considering applying to Ph.D. programs, our full-time faculty are committed to helping students prepare for their future endeavors. Mentoring can occur in-person during scheduled on-campus visits with faculty at the University of Maryland or through individual online video conferencing with faculty. Admitted students may also take advantage of the many opportunities and resources offered through the University, including their outstanding educational resources and career services division.
