Emphasize clinical work with adults or children through specialized coursework and relevant field experience.Our program is designed with two overlapping purposes: to prepare you for further study in psychology at the doctoral level; and to prepare you for employment in clinical positions at the master's degree level.


Psychology is a scientific field emphasizing the understanding of behavior - how and why we think, feel and act. As a science, it focuses on research that is designed to better understand and predict future behavior. A component of psychology involves the practical application of knowledge, skills and techniques to the solution or prevention of individual and social problems.We achieve both purposes by using a scientist-practitioner model combining research with clinical experience. You will develop:

  • A broad academic background and competence in the application of research methodology.
  • Thorough exposure to the areas of personality, psychopathology and psychotherapy.
  • Intensive training in the assessment of intelligence and personality.
