Residential Requirements for Hybrid Programs
Although you may complete most of your courses through distance learning, all our online graduate degree programs have residential requirements. Residential requirements are academic requirements, and their completion is important for your successful academic progress as well as transformational learning.
Residential requirements vary by program to accommodate the learning outcomes associated with specific degrees. Where, how often, and when residential experiences occur also varies by program.
Residential Orientation for Hybrid Learners
All clinical psychology students in a master's or PhD program begin their studies with our Residential Orientation. Residential Orientations, which are held at the start of the fall and spring semesters in San Francisco, last for approximately two days. Like our Residential Conferences, they are held at:
- Westin San Francisco Airport Hotel
- 1 Old Bayshore Highway
- Millbrae, CA 94030
- Google Maps
Residential Conferences for Hybrid Learners
Residential conferences are opportunities for students and faculty to come together to explore and study exciting ideas in their fields of interest. Our residential conferences are an important part of your learning experience. They nurture intellectual creativity, enrich the educational environment, and foster faculty and peer mentoring. Each conference offers exploration and enriched learning in a variety of topics relevant to our degree programs. The content changes from conference to conference.
All MA students in the Clinical Psychology program, except for those in the Marriage & Family Therapy/PCC Specialization, are required to attend two week-long residential conferences in San Francisco each year until they have completed all their coursework and enrolled in a thesis or project.
Students in the Marriage & Family Therapy/PCC Specialization are required to attend two week-long residential conferences in San Francisco each year until they graduate.
All PhD students in Clinical Psychology are required to attend two week-long residential conferences in San Francisco each year until passing their oral examination for candidacy.
