Graduate Program in Clinical Psychology

The doctoral program in clinical psychology has been accredited by the American Psychological Association since 1971. The program follows a scientist-practitioner model of training. Mentored research experiences, coursework and clinical training are combined to form a coherent program of study that provides graduates with the skills needed to meaningfully contribute to the science and practice of psychology. This integrated approach prepares graduates for careers as scientist-practitioners in many settings such as medical centers, colleges and universities, community mental health centers, hospitals, research centers, and private practice. We stress the importance of sensitivity to individual differences and human diversity in our training program as essential to the science and practice of psychology.  The clinical training program encourages students to pursue life-long learning to foster personal and professional development. For more information about how we accomplish these goals, see our Program Curriculum.
