In Acadia University's graduate program in Psychology you will receive clinical training adhering to the Boulder Scientist-Practitioner model, with emphasis on the integration of science and practice.
You will be trained by PhD-level clinical psychologists to use evidence-based interventions to assist individuals experiencing mental health concerns or cognitive difficulties. This prepares you to become a registered clinical psychologist in provinces supporting master's-level accreditation such as Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Alberta, and also prepares you for continued study at the Doctorate level.
Acadia is one of the only clinical master’s programs in Canada leading to eligibility for becoming a registered clinical psychologist. At Acadia, you will benefit from the small-school environment with small class sizes and individualized attention from your supervisor, while having access to faculty with a diverse set of research interests.
Acadia maintains relationships with health centres and large private practices in the region to provide you with the opportunity for practicum experience at a number of clinical settings such as NSHA Mental Health and Addictions, Child and Adolescent Mental Health, Kentville, the IWK, True North Psychological Services, Seagram and Associates, and the IWK, with other placements possible through consultation with the practicum co-ordinator.
