Penn State Erie, The Behrend College (CWRIT)

The major allows students to develop their writing skills through craft classes, literature classes, and writing workshops, in preparation for a variety of post-graduation options, from continuing on to M.F.A. degree programs to working in the professional fields of publishing, editing and education. The program recognizes students must understand the relationship between tradition and individual talent, and provides a required sequence of literature courses designed to give students an overview of the historical literary traditions, especially modern and contemporary prose and poetry. It also provides options for sequences of writing workshops, requires a course in creative writing theory, and requires a course that fosters professional development and features live reading by visiting authors. The program culminates in a capstone experience, the senior thesis, a collection of poetry or prose of publishable quality that includes a critical preface demonstrating the student’s ability to analyze and contextualize their own writing.

For the B.F.A. degree in Creative Writing, a minimum of 121 credits is required. A student enrolled in this major must earn at least a grade of C in each 300- and 400-level course.

Integrated B.S/M.A. in Applied Psychological Research
The Applied Research Psychology Program offers an integrated B.S./M.A. (IUG) program designed to allow academically superior psychology undergraduates to obtain both the bachelor’s and M.A. degree within five years of study. The first three years of undergraduate coursework are the same as other psychology undergraduates, but interested students apply for the IUG program in the spring of their junior year of study. If admitted to the IUG, the fourth year of study includes the graduate courses Ethics and Professional Practice in Psychology and Counseling (PSYC 500), Research Methods (PSYC 521) in the fall and Statistics (PSYC 521) in the spring. The IUG students then complete the remaining master’s degree requirements in the fifth year, including the master’s paper (PSYC 530). The integrated B.S./M.A. degree in Psychology meets the needs of the most academically talented students in the Psychology undergraduate major. A large proportion of the most academically talented students apply or wish to apply to graduate schools during their final year of undergraduate studies or soon after graduation. These students can benefit from the integrated degree because it provides a more challenging curriculum that allows them to accelerate their program of study to possibly receive an undergraduate and graduate degree within 5 years of study. Additionally, the integrated program can provide these students with a more cohesive program of study with opportunities to engage in more comprehensive research and clinical experience leading to both the Bachelor and Master’s degree.

For the IUG in Applied Psychological Research, a minimum of 122 credits are required for the bachelor’s degree and 35 credits for the M.A. degree. The graduate credits for PSYC 500, 521 and 520 (11 total credits) can apply to both the M.A. degree and as psychology electives for the bachelor’s degree.

The objectives of the Integrated Undergraduate Graduate Program in Applied Research Psychology include:

  1. To offer highly qualified students the opportunity to earn two degrees in five years. In particular, IUG students may count up to 12 credits towards both their B.S. and M.A. degree requirements.
  2. To permit coherent planning of studies through the graduate degree, with advising informed by not only the requirements of the baccalaureate program, but also the longer-range goals of the graduate degree.
  3. To introduce undergraduate students to the rigors of both graduate study and graduate faculty.
  4. To make the resources of the Graduate School available to IUG students.
  5. To allow students with IUG status to benefit from their association with graduate students whose level of work and whose intensity of interest and commitment parallel their own.
  6. To allow students to coordinate as well as concurrently pursue the two degree programs, which enables them to achieve greater depth and comprehension than if the degrees are pursued sequentially.

Admission Requirements
To initiate the application process, students must submit an Integrated Undergraduate-Graduate (IUG) Degree in Applied Research Psychology Application Form, a transcript, and three letters of recommendation, with at least two from faculty members. A graduate faculty adviser will help undergraduate candidates determine a sequence of courses that will prepare them for acceptance into the Integrated Undergraduate-Graduate (IUG) degree program.
Psychology undergraduates may apply for admission by no later than February 15th the spring of their junior year after completing a minimum of 45 credits, if they meet the following admission requirements:
1. Grade point average of 3.50 or above cumulative.
2. Completion of undergraduate statistics and an undergraduate research course with an A- (3.67) or above in both.
3. Completing 18 credits or more in psychology with a psychology GPA of 3.67 or above.
4. GRE scores are required for the IUG program. Typical successful candidates will obtain GRE scores of 146 or above on both the verbal and quantitative sections, with an analytical score of 3.5 or above.
5. Complete interviews with graduate faculty members.
6. Provide three professional letters of recommendation with at least two from academic references.
These admission standards are high, as it thought the program will only be appropriate for students with high levels of academic skills. The program area does have discretion in admitting psychology majors into the integrated program, and extenuating circumstances can always be considered in terms of possible admission. Individuals who are unable to be admitted into the integrated program of study can apply for regular admission when they complete their program of study. These materials must be completed by the spring of the junior year to allow admission into the IUG program the following fall.

Astronomy and Astrophysics

University Park, Eberly College of Science (ASTRO)

PROFESSOR DONALD P. SCHNEIDER, Head

Astronomy involves the study of the properties, physical nature and origins of the planets, stars, galaxies and universe as a whole. It involves development of instrumentation, observations of celestial objects with ground- and space-based telescopes, and interpretation of findings using the mathematical laws of physics such as gravity, electromagnetism and quantum mechanics. The undergraduate major provides a strong and broad foundation in mathematics, physical science and computation as well as a detailed understanding of modern astronomy. Many research opportunities are available to complement the formal classwork. Graduates proceed to advanced degrees in astronomy and other sciences, and into a wide variety of technical professions.

In order to be eligible for entrance to the Astronomy and Astrophysics major, a student must have: 1) Attained at least a 2.00 cumulative grade-point average. 2) Completed ASTRO 291 GN(3), CHEM 110 GN(3), MATH 140 GQ(4), MATH 141 GQ(4), PHYS 211 GN(4), and PHYS 212 GN(4); and earned a grade of C or better in each of these courses.

For the B.S. degree in Astronomy and Astrophysics, a minimum of 125 credits is required.

The Legal Analysis, Research & Writing (LARW) course is designed to teach each student to think, write, and speak like a lawyer. Students must learn to solve clients problems by using effective research techniques, accurate and in-depth legal analysis, and clear and concise written and oral communication. These skills will improve only with practice. Therefore, the LARW course uses a problem-solving approach through which students will represent a
fictional client and provide those clients with legal advice. Through this approach, students will learn essential skills of successful lawyers, including researching legal authorities, applying the law to a client’s situation, and communicating that analysis in writing and verbally.
