Actuarial science is a special discipline for training students to apply mathematical skills and statistical techniques to study uncertain future events, especially those of concern to insurance and pension programs. The Actuarial Sciences concentration in the Professional Science major is a relatively new master’s program at MTSU. The program offers training so that students can make practical use of probability theory and statistical analysis for managing risks and solving problems. An internship takes the place of writing a thesis. Actuaries may work for insurance companies, consulting firms, government, employee benefit departments of large corporations, hospitals, banks and investment firms, or, more generally, in businesses that need to manage financial risk. A career as an actuary is better described as a "business" career with a mathematical basis rather than as a "technical" mathematical career. The occupation of actuary has been ranked for many years as one of the best jobs based on a variety of factors.

The Master of Science (M.S.) with a major in Professional Science includes a business core with specific concentrations in Actuarial Sciences, Biostatistics, Biotechnology, Engineering Management, Geosciences, and Health Care Informatics.

The Professional Science Master's, as it is commonly called, combines the business management skills commonly found in the traditional M.B.A. type program with advanced learning in specific science fields.

This interdisciplinary program is a partnership among the College of Basic and Applied Sciences, College of Behavioral and Health Sciences, College of Liberal Arts, and the Jennings A. Jones College of Business.

The concentration in Actuarial Sciences offers preparation, basic knowledge, and professional skills to individual who want to work as an actuary and to pass actuarial professional examinations.

Career

Today’s society operates on large amounts of data. Industry, governments and academia are asked to provide insight into these data.
•But how do we deal with such large amounts of data?
•What techniques do we use to mine the data?
•What are the legal and ethical aspects regarding these data sets?
•And what economic value can be found in big data?

The MSc specialization Data Science: Business and Governance trains students to become Data Scientists that can address these questions. The Harvard Business Review calls the job of Data Scientist "the sexiest job of the 21st century"!

Why Data Science: Business and Governance in Tilburg?
•Tilburg University offers a wide range of complementary expertise, including techniques for data mining, pattern recognition, business analytics, visualization and process analytics; as well as knowledge on law, regulation, ethics and entrepreneurship.
•The MSc specialization consists of courses in methods of analysis, together with economic and management as well as legal, ethical and methodological perspectives on data, all of them taught by experts in these fields.
•The Master’s specialization Data Science: Business and Governance offers (constitutes/ consists of) a well-balanced mixture of theoretical and practical (elective) courses.

These elements combine to make this specialization unique in Europe and possibly even in the world: Four schools (Tilburg School of Economics and Management, Tilburg School of Law, Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences, and the Tilburg School of Humanities) work together in offering the best possible training for the job of the future, that of Data Scientist.

Career Prospects

Focus: Mental Wellness
Professional counseling is a vibrant field with excellent career growth opportunities. Unlike other mental health treatment approaches, counseling focuses on wellness and prevention rather than pathology.

CSPP’s clinical counseling master’s program integrates a strengths-based and resilience perspective to foster critical consciousness and reflective thinking, developing practitioner skills in diagnosis, treatment planning and psychological interventions with individuals and groups.

Empower Clients Through Multicultural Competence
The Clinical Counseling master’s program uses academic, experiential and research-based clinical practice approaches as well as direct community service learning in coursework and field placements. It also develops multicultural competence and a strong foundation in social justice advocacy to empower the clients and communities they will serve.

Students in the Clinical Counseling program are able to break down the walls of race, gender and age to build a community between themselves. Many students speak of not only the education they receive through this program but also the relationships they build with their peers. Being able to look past different cultures and views in the classroom helps students to be able to venture into outside communities and serve as effective counselors. This process gives students the confidence they need to reach out to those communities of need that they may have not been able to reach before.

Accreditation
The Clinical Counseling MA curriculum incorporates the educational requirements set out by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences, the Masters in Counseling Accreditation Council (MCAC) and the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Programs (CACREP) 2009 Standards.

Graduate Career-Ready
All students graduate positioned to pursue the Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) license in California and most other states.

What is Clinical Counseling?

Clinical Counseling is a master’s level mental health profession that applies counseling and psychotherapeutic techniques to identify and remediate cognitive, mental, and emotional issues, including personal growth, adjustment to disability, psychosocial and environmental problems, and crisis intervention. The MA Clinical Counseling Program integrates the principles of mental health recovery-oriented practice.

Training Model
Students develop practitioner skills in diagnosis, treatment planning, and psychological interventions with individuals and groups. The program uses academic, experiential, research-based clinical practice approaches and direct community service learning in coursework and field placements. Integrating a strengths-based and resilience perspective, the program fosters critical consciousness and reflective thinking as students learn counseling and consultation skills found to be effective with a variety of mental health issues. Students gain multicultural competence and a strong foundation in social justice advocacy to empower the clients and communities they will serve.

Research Training
As part of the social justice advocacy training, students will engage in a two-semester collaborative community research project in the Research Methods and Masters Project courses. This will culminate with students submitting a grant proposal to support community mental health services.

Course Schedule

The Clinical Counseling master’s program is offered on two campuses: San Francisco and Fresno. In San Francisco, most courses are offered in the afternoons and evenings. Courses in Fresno are offered in the evenings and on weekends. Field placement schedules often depend on the individual clinic or agency where each student is placed, and therefore vary depending on location.

The Master’s program in Data Science and Entrepreneurship combines management, entrepreneurship and business models with deep knowledge on data science methods from mathematics, statistics and computer science; understanding their limitations with regard to the law, regulations, and ethical considerations.

Why the Master's program in Data Science and Entrepreneurship?
Are you interested in deploying the potential power of big data to solve real-world problems? Is it a challenge for you to work with complex, structured and unstructured data? Do you like to transform innovative data-centered concepts and ideas into concrete novel and value-adding products and services? And to design business initiatives?

Data science entrepreneurs are able to monetize the flood of data that is generated in this digital age by exploiting the economic value of personal data, developing novel ways to get actionable insights from data streams and exploring novel marketing models. They will typically start up and/or innovate within data based product companies.

Therefore, in this English Master's program you will:
- Combine data science courses with courses that address the entrepreneurship pillar of the program
Examples of courses are: data integration and architecture, data mining, business process management, data entrepreneurship, and creative thinking and open innovation.

- Incorporate theories and concepts from legal and ethical aspects of business venturing, intellectual property, and ethical and privacy aspects of data.

- Apply data entrepreneurship in building a technology startup
The backbone of the program is formed by a series of courses called Data Entrepreneurship in Action (1-3). In these courses, student teams use data-driven methods to test the feasibility of an idea/innovation, build a data-intensive product/solution, propose sales channels and customers, and develop entrepreneurial skills in building a technology startup.

- Solve actual problems with real datasets from industrial partners
Representatives from the industrial partners will share actual problems and datasets in two or three applications domains from which student teams can choose. As 'clients' of the teams, the industrial representatives will actively work with our professors to coach the student teams.

How can we use research evidence to inform educational practice? What factors at the macro, meso and micro levels of the educational system determine the success of educational interventions?

The Master's track 'Evidence-Based Education' aims to provide students with a thorough understanding of how educational research can contribute to the development of effective educational innovations and to the improvement of the quality of education. We strive for education that promotes the academic, meta-cognitive, socio-emotional and behavioral outcomes of all students, regardless of their background characteristics and learning abilities. Stable educational improvement can only occur if there is a solid knowledge base to feed educational practice, from macro (e.g., policy), meso (e.g., school organization) to micro levels (e.g., classroom processes). Bridging the gap between research and educational practice requires graduates that can understand, assess and generate solid evidence, and can translate these insights into educational initiatives that are fully responsive to the societal issues and contexts in which they are embedded.

Our Masters in Psychological Therapies: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy will allow you to further your studies with a research based qualification. This programme is intended to develop your expertise as CBT practitioners, supervisors or trainers through your involvement in the design, implementation and write-up of a practice-based clinical research project.

Visit the website: https://www.canterbury.ac.uk/study-here/courses/postgraduate/cognitive-behavioural-therapy-msc.aspx

Course detail

This MSc will develop research skills which practitioners may employ in their services, and which may also serve as preparation for subsequent doctoral study. Increasingly, research and evaluation is an expected component of mental health services to assess outcome and effectiveness. Information management, evaluation planning, ethical decision making, data collection, analysis and dissemination all share a role in the process of research, and this year is designed to develop your skills in each of these areas.

Suitability

The Masters programme is targeted at graduates of the PG Diploma in Psychological Therapies: CBT.

Content

The programme consists of two modules, which are designed around learning outcomes that provide you with the essential skills for undertaking effective research. Module 1 centres on the conception, design and writing of a research proposal for an original project with relevance to CBT. Module 2 involves you conducting the research: obtaining ethical approval, gathering, analysing data, and interpreting results, culminating in writing a research thesis.

Format

There are two modules in this Masters programme. These are required to be taken in sequence for the award of the MSc qualification. Both modules are designed around learning outcomes that will help you gain skills that are essential to undertaking effective research. These skills, academic and communication skills, managing one’s own learning and working with others are also skills that are directly linked to successful employment and to preparation for a clinical doctorate qualification, if desired.

The curriculum is integrated in such a way as to be able to deliver a step-by-step approach to help build research skills that will have immediate ‘real life’ applicability. In order to do this successfully the programme is developed around a case-example approach to learning. Case study vignettes and current policy documents will be drawn from our stakeholders in the NHS, community organisations and charities. These real life case studies underpin our commitment to provide skills that are needed by employers and in further postgraduate study.

Assessment

You are required to complete a range of assessments, both formative (not requiring a pass mark) and summative (need to be passed). Formative assessment strategies will include formative writing assignments and reflective reports, tests, presentations, tutor responses to participation in online discussion groups, tutor comments on draft pieces of work and peer review.

The summative assessments will include the project proposal and the final research thesis. The proposal will consist of a 4000-word submission in which you will demonstrate your understanding of the background to your research study, and of the different methodologies and strategies you intend to use. Summative assessment will culminate in the design, production and presentation of an independent research project, which will test the extent to which you can apply the learning gained on the programme. You will be required to write up your research according to an appropriate scientific framework for the method adopted, in a thesis of no more than 12,000 words.

What can I do next?

This MSc is intended to develop your expertise as CBT practitioners, supervisors or trainers through your involvement in a small-scale research project. You will be taught a range of research skills and will learn to use these competently through designing and conducting an empirical investigation under direct, one to one supervision. For example, you may develop expertise in a specialist area of CBT practice through the use of practice-based single case research design methodologies. Furthermore, this programme may serve as preparation for subsequent doctoral study, including the PhD in Professional Practice, also delivered at the Salomons Centre for Applied Psychology.

The track Work and Organizational Psychology adheres to these standards as far as possible, and offers a study program that deals with the most important topics in Work & Organizational Psychology at the individual, task, group and organizational level.

The program

Work and Organizational Psychology is a field with both a strong scientific base and an applied orientation. Thus, the program connects psychological theory and application whereby theoretical concepts are shown to lead to useful interventions. In each of the areas of Work, Organizational and Personnel Psychology, the program seeks to develop two types of knowledge and skills: explanatory and intervention.

Explanatory refers to theory devoted to the explanation of (the context of) human behavior and to diagnostic skills in work, organization, and personnel fields. This will prepare you to assess, diagnose, explain, and interpret phenomena and processes in the areas of work, organizations and personnel.

Intervention refers to change theory and intervention skills in work, organizational and personnel settings. This will prepare you to plan, implement, monitor, and evaluate changes and interventions to improve behaviors, situations, and social processes in the fields of work, organizations, and personnel. This type of knowledge also prepares you to design new models, methods, and tools. The two types of knowledge and skills will be integrated as much as possible within the various courses.
