Graduates in the World

Gina Frohlich

Gina L. Frohlich (2006)
Doctoral Student in Clinical Sport Psychology
Argosy University
Phoenix, AZ

The psychology program at Fort Hays prepared me for the rigorous work and dedication I needed to be successful at the doctorate level. In addition to my degree in Clinical Psychology, I will be completing a Master's in Sport Psychology. Prior to moving here, I spent a summer in New York City completing an apprenticeship for the New York Center for Children. Attending Fort Hays not only helped present that opportunity, but I was able to speak about my growth as a psychologist in training upon returning, and ultimately make my decision to further my education. The FHSU psychology department faculty members are one of a kind. They dedicate numerous hours and showed patience and understanding as I made decisions regarding my future. Not only were they willing to help with the application process, but they genuinely cared about how I was doing once I started the doctorate program in Arizona. The Fort Hays psychology program is well rounded and I would recommend this program to anyone who chooses to follow a career path that entails working with people.

Kristen Goodheart (2007)
Doctoral Student in Clinical Psychology
Texas Tech University
Lubbock, TX

The graduate program in clinical psychology at FHSU is a great choice for individuals interested in clinical practice immediately following graduation as well as those interested in pursuing a doctoral degree. Completing the master's program in clinical psychology at FHSU has benefited me as a doctoral student because it provided me with insight about future education. I have found the level of instruction that I received as a master's student to be at least as good as the instruction I am currently receiving as a doctoral student. At FHSU, the instructors are knowledgeable, experienced, and challenged students to apply academic knowledgeable to the therapeutic setting. Because I enjoyed my experience as a master's level student, I felt comfortable committing to an intense, 5-year doctoral program and was more confident in my ability to be a successful doctoral student.

Maggie Herman (2006)
Counselor Trainee
Valley Hope
Norton, KS

I have applied to receive my AAPS (Association of Addiction Professions) credential to be a drug and alcohol counselor. I graduated from the year-long counselor training program provided by Valley Hope. I absolutely love my job and have met some incredible people who come through Valley Hope and need help getting their lives back on track. I not only do individual counseling, but lead a small group daily and also give lectures regarding addiction. The FHSU Psychology Department prepared me by giving me a great understanding of people and a framework of psychology and the human mind to build upon.

Robert Yates III (2006)
Doctoral Student in Clinical Psychology
University of North Texas
Denton, TX

The years I spent at FHSU working on my Bachelor's degree in psychology were some of the best years of my life. Because FHSU is a small school, you get the kind of attention and help from professors that is not possible at larger schools. I was able to work with my instructors outside of class on research projects, volunteer activities, conference presentations, and the publication of a journal article. I don't believe that I would have had those opportunities at some other universities. The experiences that I had at Fort Hays State University enabled me to successfully apply to a doctoral program in clinical psychology. Since beginning the program, I have felt completely prepared to meet any challenge, and I believe that is largely due to my experiences in the psychology department at FHSU.
