Graduate Program in Community Research and Action
As you likely know, a degree in psychology prepares you for many different careers and can gain you admittance into a variety of graduate programs (click here, here, here, and here for examples of what some of our recent graduates are up to now). If you are interested in attending graduate school but aren't sure you want to be a researcher or clinician, you may be interested in a unique Ph.D. program in Community Research and Action (CRA) at Vanderbilt University.
According to Vanderbilt, "CRA draws on multiple social science perspectives including community psychology, urban sociology, human geography, and community development. Faculty and students are committed to using research to promote social justice." Their doctoral program provides the opportunity to "study with an internationally known, diverse faculty", to "analyze problems at multiple levels", to "approach research and practice from an interdisciplinary perspective", and to "collaborate on research aimed at transformative social change."
