Dear Dr. [Surname],
With this letter I would like to state my strong motivation and submit my application for a Master of Arts program in Psychology with an emphasis in Counseling Psychology in the School of Psychology of the Webster University.
I am interested in particular in the Counseling Psychology of the Master Program because I was captivated by the work of the two professors of the Webster University, who have done comprehensive research in the field of Psychopathology and Developmental Psychology. As you may see in the application file and in my curriculum I have complete bachelor degree in Psychology from the University of [Name of the University] with a major in applied statistics and psychological research. Following graduation, I have strived to utilize my theoretical skills and have been consequently involved in several research projects.
Thanks to one of research project I have participated in I got keen to learn more about counseling psychology and decided to apply for a Master course. I am in particular interested to peruse my career in Family counseling, because I believe this is today and emerging area of counseling psychology.
I expect that this Master program will provide me an opportunity to strengthen my theoretical knowledge base, which I can later on in the practical setting. After gaining some experience I counseling practice I would like to obtain license to work as a Family counselor, and I perceive a Master degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Counseling Psychology as a good starting point toward my career goals.
I would like to thank you for the time and effort you invested in consideration of my application. Please feel free to contact me if there is anything else I should provide to you.
I look forward to your positive response and I am fully prepared and keen to become a student of the Webster University.
