Ps 220 Unit 9 Assignment

Running head: Unit 9 Assignment[Type here]The program I have chosen is the Master of Science in Psychology, Addictions track. I would like to eventually work with substance abuse clients and clients with other types of addictions. These would include gambling, eating, sexual and any other type of disorder one would present with. I have chosen the comprehensive exam track rather than the thesis.

The program I have chosen should be done in 3 years and possibly sooner, if I decide to take more than one class in a term.Degree PlanMaster of Science in PsychologyCredits earned: 0Credits required: 70GPA: 00Status: activeEnrollment date: 09/09/2015Start date: 10/14/15Graduation date: 10/09/18Core Requirements: credits required: 35Course:MM570 Applied Statistics for Psychology 5 credits futurePS501 Foundations of Professional Psychology 5 credits currentPS 502 Ethics and Standards of 5 credits scheduledProfessional PsychologyPS 504 Advanced Research Methods 5 credits future
