Practical Training Requirements
For both the Cognitive Psychology and Neuropsychology Program and the Educational and Developmental Psychology Program there is a requirement of 24 weeks of practical training (4 hours per week). The Clinical Training Requirement is set at 800 hours spread over a period of 60 weeks. The student’s performance during this training is evaluated by the appointed faculty or staff member. For successful completion of this requirement the student’s performance must be characterized at least as “satisfactory”.

Teaching and Research Assistance Requirements

All graduate students are expected to provide assistance in undergraduate courses. This assistance may involve review seminars, laboratory exercises, proctoring of exams.

Graduate students are also expected to participate in research activities of the Department in addition to conducting their own research leading to the preparation of the Master’s thesis.

Master’s Thesis Requirement
In addition to the completion of all course and training requirements during the two years of required residence, students are expected to submit by Dec 31 following the above two years a Master’s Thesis. The Department assigns the evaluation of the thesis to two faculty members in addition to the supervisor. Completion of this requirement in addition to the requirements outlined above, leads to the Master’s degree. The grade of the degree is calculated on the basis of performance in coursework as well as on the grade received for the thesis.

Eligibility, Application, Admission
Each Division of the Masters Program admits 7-10 graduate students each year. Eligible applicants are students with a psychology undergraduate degree from Greek or accredited foreign universities. In cases of applicants with degrees other than psychology, exceptions can be made only after a departmental decision which examines the relevance of the degree to the intended course of study.

Except for national Scholarship recipients (who have excelled in nation-wide examinations) all other applicants are admitted on the basis of an admission procedure that evaluates the student’s performance on entrance examinations (in two courses selected by each division and one foreign language), the Grade Point Average (GPA) of the students undergraduate degree, the GPA of the upper level courses of the division to which they are applying. In addition, the admissions committee takes into account research activities, publications, practical experience. On occasion interviews may also be conducted.

Applications for admission must be submitted to the department secretary by September 31, and the examinations are conducted during the first two weeks of October. Classes begin on Nov. 1. Information on the subjects examined as well as on other pertinent matters may be obtained from the Divisions Secretary, Ms. Lena Avgerinou (office telephone number: 997313).

                         THE PSYCHOLOGY OF ADDICTIONS AND PSYCHOSOCIAL PROBLEMS PROGRAM
The Social and Clinical Psychology Graduate Program has developed a special program of Social and Clinical Psychology of Addictions with emphasis on Drug Addiction and Rehabilitation. The aim of the program is to train staff for dealing with psychosocial problems with emphasis on the problem of drug abuse.

The philosophy of the program rests on the idea that the drug abuse problem is not an isolated problem, but has common causal origins with other social problems (teenage crime, old age alcoholism) in the continuing social crisis. The training of the students is thus tuned not to one special problem with isolated and piecemeal techniques, but to the common causes of psychosocial problems. In the same line of thought, the treatment of these problems is sought on a community level so that the students are trained to provide the necessary encouragement on a social communal level. The orientation of the group psychotherapy followed is Rogerian. To assume such a pivotal role, trainees are expected to become sensitive to the personal values, beliefs and prejudices of the targeted population and to develop the appropriate social skills that will enable they to function in the role of encourager of self-help strategies in the community in question.

It is obvious from the above that in addition to the required theoretical training of the Graduate Program in Social and Clinical Psychology, the students of this program are expected to become involved in work groups that operate on a daily basis. High motivation and exclusive involvement with their training is therefore a necessary prerequisite for attending the program.

                                                                   DOCTORATE DEGREE PROGRAM
Students who have successfully completed the above Master’s Degree or holders of equivalent degrees from Greek or accredited foreign universities are eligible for application to the Doctorate (Ph.D.) Program. Applications, which include the proposed dissertation topic are submitted by Oct. 15 of each year to the Department, and a decision is reached in the next Department Meeting. In the event of a positive decision, a three-member overseeing committee is assigned by the department, consisting of the dissertation adviser and two readers. The overseeing committee is responsible for guiding the doctoral candidates’ work, for monitoring their progress and for evaluating the dissertation to be presented to the department.

The requirements for the degree include a year of coursework which is designed in accordance with the committee’s recommendations and two to three years of thesis preparation which involves research. In addition, the doctoral candidate has the obligation to fulfill teaching and research requirements which may involve assisting in undergraduate and graduate courses, assisting in the research activities of the Department, as well as presentation of doctoral research to graduate seminars.

When the dissertation is completed and acting upon the recommendation of the overseeing committee, the candidate submits 12 copies of the dissertation to the Department which selects a seven-member examination committee that includes the three members of the overseeing committee and appoints a date for its public defense. It is customary that the examination committee includes one or two external examiners who are specialists in the field of the dissertation from other psychology or related departments. The dissertation, together with the evaluation of the overseeing committee, is distributed well in advance to the examination committee while the evaluation is distributed to all members of the department. The defense of the dissertation is done in a conference that is open to the public. The candidate is given at the start a maximum of 1/2 hour to present the main ideas and results of the dissertation and then has to answer questions posed by the examination committee. When all questions have been answered, the examination committee retires to discuss the dissertation and its defense and a decision is reached as to the grade assigned to the dissertation. The degree is officially conferred during the next full faculty meeting presided by the Rector of the University or representative, during which the candidate takes the oath of the Doctor of Philosophy.
