Theoretical and practical material is studied throughout these full-time programs to deliver skills that will assist students in succeeding not only in their academics, but also in job placements throughout the psychology community. Applied research and practitioner positions are filled for internships and cooperative programs to prepare future psychologists for what lies ahead. NIU graduate students in the psychology program are expected to take 12 credit hours each semester, disallowing part-time or night studies, and are encouraged to work toward a Ph.D in their chosen field.
