Clinical psychology course work includes formal course work in the core areas of psychology, research methods, personality and psychopathology, principles of psychological assessment and intervention and professional issues in clinical psychology. The program trains students to do what psychologists actually do in today’s society: ethically apply knowledge of psychological theory, assessment, research methodology and clinical skill to complex clinical problems.
Our programs are based upon the scientist-practitioner model: we define psychological practice as the application of the theory, methods and results of scientific psychology to clinical problems. Licensing laws of states vary widely, and students should consult the licensing body in the state in which they intend to practice to determine opportunities and requirements for licensure at the master’s level.

Students earn two degree in less time, eliminate 16 hours of course work which would be required if the programs in law and clinical psychology were taken separately.
Prepares graduates to become scientist practitioners of clinical psychology, and develop a broad range of skills for the identification, evaluation, and resolution of human problems.
