Graduate Programs Celebrate Commencement

August 2, 2017

Nearly 225 students in PCOM’s graduate programs received their advanced degrees on July 31, transitioning them to the next phase of their professional lives.

This year’s keynote speaker, Rosemary B. Mennuti, EdD, is the founding director of PCOM’s graduate degree programs in school psychology. She has published and presented widely in the treatment of eating disorders, cognitive-behavioral group therapy, moral reasoning, and ethical decision making. She is a diplomate of the American Psychotherapy Association and is certified in school counseling, school psychology and group psychotherapy.

Dr. Mennuti asked the graduates to consider their connections with others, and the need to be present in the moment, as keys to success. She also urged them to have deep courage in all that they do. “Take your authentic self to work,” she said. “Stand up for what you believe in.”

Students received the following degrees: Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology, Doctor of Psychology in School Psychology, Educational Specialist in School Psychology, Master of Science in School Psychology, Master of Science in Counseling and Clinical Health Psychology, Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling, Master of Science in Organizational Development and Leadership, Master of Science in Forensic Medicine, Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences and Master of Science in Health Sciences - Physician Assistant Studies.
