Major: Psychology (This Major's Salary over time)
I am currently a retired vocational psychologist. I was the staff psychologist for the State Department of Rehabilitation in Santa Barbara for 25 years plus. CCU was a great experience for myself as a working psychologist. The cost was very reasonable but the academic support limited. As a doctoral program I'd recommend that any graduate student in psychology obtain their Masters from a traditional university and then pursue their PhD in a CCU type of program. One is required to work alone. Also research design is a necessity for every grad student. So if a psych grad has no exposure to statistical design and writing, I would think that such an individual would struggle even to arrive at an appropriate research question. In my case I was in experimental psychology as an undergraduate and then went into a Master's program for counseling and guidance. Since I was accustomed to research projects of various types, I was delighted to have autonomy and self pace. A graduate committee could have been a major hinderance in pursuing a topic of interest and gathering data in my work setting. Instead Dr. Jones was both accomodating and constructive in assisting me during the proposal phase. My hope is that the CCU will eventually be able to grant doctorates again in the field of psychology. Best wishes to Dr. Thomas Neal and Dr Nancy Jones
