Welcome to the Clinical Psychology Program
The Clinical specialization offers two tracks of study to accommodate the interests of students: (a) Doctoral preparation track and (b) Practitioner track. Each track requires the student to complete a 52 credit hour program of coursework and clinical field experiences. The coursework in the first year is the same for students in both tracks. In the second year, students in the doctoral preparation track complete a research or data-based thesis, and students in the practitioner track take elective courses that are suitable for their post-MA goals.
The program requires full-time study for two academic years; no courses are offered during the summer, though students in the doctoral preparation track frequently work on their theses during the summer between the first and second years.
