GRADUATE SCHOOL OF BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SCIENCES

STUDENT RESOURCES

E-LIBRARY

The Graduate School of breathing Sciences offers a two-prong E-Library System: the Journal Portal and the Kindle Textbook Library.

  • JOURNALS:
    The Journal Portal provides access to more than 3,000 on line professional journals, including 2100 health & medical journals and 700 behavioral science & psychology journals on a 24 X 7 basis. It includes both abstracts and full text journal articles for most journals, including current and back issues. Students and faculty can browse through articles appearing in specific journals, download pdf copies of articles, and create a cloud storage of articles relevant to a research topic.
  • TEXTBOOKS:
    The Graduate School Kindle Library provides students with course textbooks, which may be signed out and returned as needed from their own computers, cell phones, or I-Pads. The cost is $100.00 per trimester radically reducing textbook costs.

FACULTY AND ACADEMIC CONSULTATION

  • COURSE CONSULTATION:
    Faculty members are available for group discussion sessions on Skype or WebEx at a time scheduled by the faculty member and one or more students.
  • PROGRAM CONSULTATION:
    Students may make appointments with the Dean of Students, or a representative, on an as needed basis.  Also, the Dean’s office may request a personal meeting to discuss performance, participation, or degree completion issues.
  • ADVISORY CONSULTATION:
    Appointments with faculty may be made at any time, at the discretion of the faculty member, either through the e-campus messaging system or directly by personal email.  On request, the Dean of Students will assign a faculty advisor most appropriate to your unique background, professional requirements, and academic needs.

FINANCIAL AID SERVICES:

  • SCHOLARSHIPS, TUITION LOANS, AND PAYMENT OPTIONS:
    Each student’s individual financial needs are handled on a case by case basis.  Contact the VP-Administration or Director of Financial Aid to set up an appointment to review your particular needs and concerns or to discuss alternative payment programs.

 PLACEMENT SERVICES:

  • CAREER COUNSELING, PLACEMENT ASSISTANCE, AND PRACTICE GROWTH:
    Although most students are self-employed or employed as practitioners within their own professions when they enter the MS degree program, we recognize that personal circumstances change.  Both faculty and administrative staff are available to review career choices, advise on resumes, and discuss placement options.  Certain business courses such as 501 Business Planning and 502 Developing a Marketing Plan also provide direct opportunities for professional growth or for a change in business strategy or direction.
