Antioch University Santa Barbara students in the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (PsyD) program create posters and presented their research on Friday, June 10 to the campus community at the program’s annual Scholar’s Day.
Scholar’s Day is a forum for advanced doctoral students to present posters depicting the research they are proposing and conducting. The campus is invited to browse all of them and discuss the topics with the students. The research conducted by the students often form the basis of their dissertations.
“It fills me with pride to see our students presenting their research at Scholars’ Day,” said Brett Kia-Keating, EdD, Teaching Faculty in the PsyD program. “Witnessing what they have done and hearing their mastery of the research not only affirms how much they have learned, but also their commitment to social justice.”
