Students in the Graduate Certificate program will also be required to complete a "tabletop" disaster response scenario simulation online. This will provide a capstone measure of the student's mastery of Clinical/Disaster Psychology. The goal for this assessment will be that each student's performance will be evaluated as superior to entry-level disaster mental health personnel. The capstone can only be taken after the completion of all course requirements.
