Directed Studies

Posted on October 27,2011 by mmosesmspp

It's coming up on registration time. While there are many great courses offered at MSPP, it can be difficult to fit them in to our busy schedules, working around internship requirements. One option to get around these constraints is to create a directed study.

Students have created directed studies on such topics as play therapy, college counseling, men and masculinity, and Dissociative Identity Disorder. Currently, I am working with other students to study Internal Family Systems Theory (IFS).

Directed studies can be a great way to explore a specific area of interest. Additionally, because they are often taught by outside professors, students get the chance to meet other professionals in the field. A maximum of six students can enroll in a directed study, creating a setting where rich discussions can occur. The opportunities are endless - happy organizing!
