I came out of undergrad with a psych degree, and most of my upper level work was in community and environmental psych. I've been doing community organizing as an Americorps VISTA for the past two years, and want to go to Grad School in Fall of 2005. The problem is, I'm having some trouble narrowing the field.
I want a program that stresses community involvement in planning, and will probably end up working for a local governement in a medium-sized city. I'm also very interested in policy.
Does anyone have any suggestions for schools? I'm looking at UIUC, Ball State, UNC. People keep reccomending Pann's program to me as well, although cost will be a factor. I'm willing to go anywhere, and would enjoy living somewhere I haven't been.
All that said, I'd appreciate any pointers. I have looked at the ACSP guide, but would like a bit more real-world advice. Thanks!
