Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Very hands-on and high quality school psych program. Faculty for core counseling classes are top-notch, usually still doing private practice, and very invested in my growth as a person and a mental health professional. There's still work to be done on increasing diversity, but faculty seem very committed to welcoming diverse students and creating and environment where all students feel respected and valued. They include a lot of assignments to help students learn to serve culturally and linguistically diverse students. There are also courses to help us understand spiritual integration (as recommended by APA and ACA). Most of the core school psychology classes are taught by adjuncts who are experienced (and still practicing) school psychologists, so we benefit from their recent experience with assessment, consultation, etc.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

This is a newly accredited Doctor of Physical Therapy program, but it already has the reputation for creating and developing innovative and excellent clinicians! The professors are excellent at delivering pertinent and evidence based information and able to take complex concepts and put them into ideas we can fully understand.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

The strengths of the programs I have interacted with are the diversity of the Theology programs and the willingness to work with designing a more personal program. I have a passion to serve in First Peoples communities and nations; I am designing a program to combine a spiritual aspect to counseling and advocacy. The emphasis is the much-needed respect of the spiritual aspect of healing and wholeness in indigenous people. As you see this is an unusual program and G Fox staff and programs have been great to craft and support me in my endeavor. There is a lack of financial Aid and ethnic diversity but this can be due to the size and the location of the school. There is a lack of career development in terms of fellowships/internships and job placement.
