Graduate Psychology Ambassador: Rebecca Huseman
Meet student ambassador Rebecca Huseman, a Clinical Psychology Psy.D. student. Our ambassadors are exceptional students who have been selected by faculty to represent the Immaculata University graduate student experience.
Rebecca resides in West Chester, where she has been since she began studying at IU in fall 2011.
What are your interests?
My academic interests are clinical psychology and forensic psychology, and my dissertation will likely focus on borderline pathology. I currently have two practicum placements, one in a community mental health setting and one in a forensic setting.
What brought you here to Immaculata?
Immaculata’s Psy.D. program provides training in most major theoretical orientations and a consortium for the internship process. Additionally, while interviewing, I found that I just kind of “clicked” with the professors.
What are your goals?
After graduating, I plan to complete my post-doc and take the licensure exam in whatever state I live in. I hope to work in a forensic setting; however, I am keeping my options open.
What has your experience been like at Immaculata?
I have had a great experience at Immaculata. The professors in the Psy.D. program are knowledgeable, supportive, and approachable. I feel as though I’ve gained a lot through my courses here. Additionally, I have met a lot of close friends and great colleagues through the program.
