Texas Tech’s new clinical psychology department has an opportunity to expand its academic base by enrolling more students in psychology programs. This expansion will help the department bring in more students to enhance their educational experience.
This is a small but important step towards expanding the department. It’s already a large psychology department, with a good number of faculty who specialize in psychology (like the department chair and the department’s dean of education). But the program isn’t able to recruit the talent because it doesn’t have any psychology faculty.
The department is in need of new faculty members in psychology, and with the addition of this new program, there will be more people from the psychology department available to recruit students. It also helps that there are new applicants for the doctoral programs out here so there are more qualified students who want to go to the graduate school. Thats right, the school is allowing more people to enter the graduate school.
The school’s website says, “Texas Tech has a reputation as one of the safest and most effective universities in the nation. Many of the programs offered by Texas Tech have had a track record of academic success and academic excellence.” It also claims that the school has the largest doctoral program in the country. However, since the school began teaching psychology, the number of students graduating with PhDs has dropped to around 10% of the class. This is the biggest drop in the history of the school.
This drop is not a good thing, especially for those of us who are committed to helping students with their studies, but we can understand the reasoning behind it. Texas Tech uses a rigorous curriculum that includes both traditional teaching as well as laboratory courses. This can be a double-edged sword. The labs can lead to a lot of stress, while the traditional academic classes can lead to students feeling like they are being forced to “learn their way out” of the classroom.
As a student, you need to find the balance between your school work and your personal life. Being forced to take the lab courses can be stressful, but it may be something you want to do! Even if you decide not to do the lab, you can still find ways to interact with your teachers. As a therapist, I see that student who is stressed out about a lab, but doesn’t have the time for a personal relationship with her teacher.
The good news for you is that you don’t have to go to this class if you don’t want to. If you don’t like the lab course you can easily switch to the class that is in your state. This is a free course and will help you improve your clinical psychology skills.
I’m not sure I ever did this for the rest of my life. I was a patient for years. So when I went to school for my university, I didn’t really have any reason to go because I didn’t want to spend the whole day with someone who didnt want to be in the lab.
For the past few years, I have been a patient in a clinic in Texas. I have been doing clinical psychology for at least 10 years now, but I have never gone to a class with people I didnt like in the first place. It was a really fun experience, but I hate it. I didnt ever feel like I was actually learning anything or that the course was beneficial. I wish I could spend the whole day in the lab, but I couldnt find someone to watch me.
