Recent Achievements

Dr. Keith Cruise is co-principal investigator for a new grant to improve practices and outcomes for youth in the juvenile justice system at risk of negative after-effects from trauma. The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention funded this collaborative effort under the direction of staff at the National Center for Mental Health and Juvenile Justice. Center for Trauma Recovery and Juvenile Justice. as well as various state and county level justice departments.

Congratulations to four of our CPDP faculty who have have been awarded six new research grants (5 of which are federally-funded, and 5 multi-year) that total almost $1-million in total direct costs. All of these grants focus on cross-cultural and/or vulnerable, underrepresented minority (URM) populations.

School settings URM youth

Our new research projects add to our CPDP faculty s multi-million dollar research portfolio across numerous faculty. These new projects also bolster our existing strengths in each of our core training areas. As detailed in the last column of the table above, each of the new projects contributes to our training in:

  • Biomedical, Psychosocial, Sociocultural aspects of Clinical Psychology
  • Our rigorous cross-cutting Training Priorities (i.e. Research Methodology, Research Ethics Forensic Issues, Assessment Techniques, and Advanced Analytics)
  • Our four core training settings and the vulnerable populations in these settings (i.e. School, Healthcare, Forensic Mental Health, and Community Engaged Ethics Research; children, adolescents, older adults; and vulnerable and understudied populations such as HIV, refugees, low SES, etc.)

Overview of newly funded research projects

  • Dr. Cruise has two new projects. The first is funded by the National Center for Mental Health and Juvenile Justice. This project will implement a new screening tool for juvenile justice community diversion centers. The second project is funded by SAMHSA and provides trauma support for youths who are at risk of, or already involved with the juvenile justice system. Both projects focus on Forensic Mental Health Settings vulnerable, low-income URM youth.
  • Dr. Rivera Mindt has a new project funded by the Alzheimer s Association that examines how genetic (APOE 4) and nongenetic (cerebrovascular, sociocultural) risk factors contribute to cognitive neural abnormalities in aging HIV+ Latinas/os. Trainees will collect and analyze data using novel Research Methodologies (i.e. genetics, neuroimaging, sociocultural), and this project incorporates Biomedical and Sociocultural training within a Healthcare setting with vulnerable, low-income URM older adults.
  • Dr. Rosenfeld received support from a Health Disparities/Equities Research Supplement to his NCI-funded R21 grant and contributes to our Research Ethics Forensic Issues training. This project focuses on health disparities by adding a sample of Latina/o cancer patients to an on-going study to validate a new measure of prognostic understanding. This project occurs in a Healthcare setting and involves research with Latina/o cancer patients.
  • Dr. Yip has a new project funded by the National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities and contributes to our Sociocultural training. This project adds a sample of Chinese adolescents to a study of ethnic/racial discrimination, sleep disturbance and health to an on-going study exploring the same associations among Black and Hispanic youth funded by the NSF. This project takes place in public School settings and involves ethnically diverse youth.

Moving to one campus

Between 2016 and 2020 we re investing 125 million in the London Metropolitan University campus, moving all of our activity to our current Holloway campus in Islington, north London. This will mean the teaching location of some courses will change over time.

Whether you will be affected will depend on the duration of your course, when you start and your mode of study. The earliest moves affecting new students will be in September 2017. This may mean you begin your course at one location, but over the duration of the course you are relocated to one of our other campuses. Our intention is that no full-time student will change campus more than once during a course of typical duration.

All students will benefit from our move to one campus, which will allow us to develop state-of-the-art facilities, flexible teaching areas and stunning social spaces.

Additional costs

Please note, in addition to the tuition fee there may be additional costs for things like equipment, materials, printing, textbooks, trips or professional body fees.

Additionally, there may be other activities that are not formally part of your course and not required to complete your course, but which you may find helpful (for example, optional field trips). The costs of these are additional to your tuition fee and the fees set out above and will be notified when the activity is being arranged.

Unistats – key information set

Unistats is the official site that allows you to search for and compare data and information on university and college courses from across the UK. The widget(s) below draw data from the corresponding course on the Unistats website. If a course is taught both full-time and part-time, one widget for each mode of study will be displayed here.

Master of Business Administration Australia

Australian MBA programs have changed considerably from their somewhat staid and traditional reputation of a few decades ago to now exhibit a flexible response to the constantly changing business environment. This response includes the availability of various business specialisations and foci within the MBA Australia structure including strategy and management analysis in areas such as finance and accounting, operations management, human resource management, and marketing, all including both a local and an internationalised global approach. Along with this the program has adapted to become more accessible in terms of delivery with full time, part time, online and mixed mode options, along with a range of entry requirements from undergraduate degrees and work experience to graduate certificates and graduate diplomas in business and business management.

The outcome of this is an array of options with something to suit every prospective student including students on a career path towards corporate leadership, students advancing into the higher levels of public sector management, and students who want to start or develop their own small business. The program offering can also provide career changing pathways for individuals from technical backgrounds such as engineering, teaching, and nursing so they can move into management and leadership roles such as operations manager, school principal, nurse leader and beyond. The breadth and depth of modern day MBAs in Australia can even be attractive to someone who just wants to study for personal interest and self-development, although other rewards would almost certainly follow upon successful completion of a program undertaken with this purpose in mind.
