The CDPP is strongly invested in preparing students to teach in University settings. The CDPP faculty take great pride in their contributions to undergraduate teaching at a leading liberal arts college and are eager to share their knowledge and experience with graduate student teaching assistants. CDPP students serve as teaching assistants in the department’s introductory psychology course sequence and the undergraduate abnormal psychology class. Many additional opportunities (e.g., Educational Psychology, Learning, Developmental Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Statistics, and Multivariate Statistics) are available to gain teaching experience at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
"I chose the CDPP for the breadth of learning and experience it offers, and the program didn´t disappoint. Not only did I gain the clinical expertise I needed to be the Assistant Director of a University counseling center for several years, but the skills taught and modeled by the CDPP faculty also prepared me well for my current position as a faculty member at a large state university.",
