Preparation for Graduate Study

The Applied Psychology concentration prepares students for graduate work in psychology, social work, and other related fields. It provides a meaningful background for a variety of other professional careers, as knowledge in psychology is central to many professions in our service-oriented society.

Students who intend to pursue doctoral-level graduate work in psychology should plan on independent study in an area of research beyond the required Research Methods and Statistics course sequence. In their studies, they should be sure to develop library research skills and familiarity with some research in their field of interest. The Advisor should also be consulted concerning particular course work. Antioch Santa Barbara offers a Masters in Clinical Psychology with several concentrations.
