When does my program start?


Your program begins with a required four-week summer session that starts in late July or early August. (Exact dates will be e-mailed to you in March.) During that session you will take the T6009 Advanced Standing Integrative Seminar, a course that provides a refresher on direct practice skills. It also has breakout sessions for the four areas of specialization, to help prepare you for taking specialized practice courses in the Fall. This class meets from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., Mondays to Thursdays.  Additionally, you will be registered for the T6012 Field Education Seminar, a field education preparatory course that meets twice a week.
