» Counseling & School Psychology Travel Courses


The graduate programs in Counseling and School Psychology have sponsored short-term travel courses in Guatemala, Cambodia and Vietnam. These study abroad programs afford students practical experience and allow them to provide more culturally competent services to families from these areas that are living and learning in California.

For CSP students, these travel exchange courses substitute for CSP 514 - Cultural and Community Issues in either the Counseling or School Psychology programs. Students from other Attallah College programs are also welcome. Please contact Drs. Michael Hass at mhass@chapman.edu or Kelly Kennedy at kkennedy@chapman.edu.
