All department faculty play an important role in education and provide clinical supervision in a large, well-funded internship program within the APA accredited Nebraska Internship Consortium and in a growing postdoctoral fellowship program. The Psychology department is also home to the Mid-America Mental Health Technology Transfer Center, which is a federally funded collaborative network that supports resource development and dissemination, training and technical assistance, and workforce development to the mental health field. The department is decidedly a behavioral program by orientation, but are open to applications of diverse, yet aligned theoretical orientations. Some department faculty teach courses in the ABA Masters degree program which prepares graduates for licensure as a mental health practitioner and also certification as a BCBA. Faculty members are encouraged to develop and participate in clinical research. Specific areas of research interest are less important than fit within our mission.
