Over 6.5 million people live in the 10 cities that comprise the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) Metroplex. DFW is the largest metropolitan area in Texas and the fourth largest in the nation. The metroplex is quite diverse; with a racial makeup that is 69% White, 14% African-American, and 22% Hispanic/Latino (may be of any race). The city of Dallas itself is even more diverse, with a racial makeup of 50% White, 25% African American, and 42% Hispanic/Latino. Over 90 languages are spoken in the area and there are large immigrant populations from Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe, and Central and South America. There is also extensive socioeconomic diversity, ranging from poverty to wealth, and diversity in family types (e.g. single and dual parent, opposite-sex and same-sex). Thus, students are able to conduct research and obtain clinical experiences with individuals, couples, and families from a great variety of population groups.
