Training in the applied skills of clinical assessment and intervention requires a thorough understanding of the range of human functioning. The database of the psychological literature is our groundwork and the scientific method guides our work. We require students to develop an understanding of how this database is generated, how to evaluate its utility, and how to apply it. Thus, all students are required to take the core of methodology and basic psychology courses in addition to the clinical core and a practicum experience in the community. Because a two-year curriculum can provide only the basics, it is expected that we are preparing students to proceed with training at the doctoral level. For a more detailed discussion of the clinical standards and goals, see our "Statement of Scope of Training and Standards of Behavior" which can be found here.
Prospective students should be aware that the clinical MA track has a focus on adult populations. There is limited coverage of child-related topics in the clinical coursework and limited child-oriented practicum opportunities. While research opportunities with children and adolescents are possible, limited clinical training with children is provided in the MA track.
