About

The track of the Master of Arts in Psychology - Clinical Track from University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) is an adult-focused program that follows the Boulder scientist/practitioner training model which emphasizes the integrated roles of science and practice.

Overview

Prospective students should be aware that the Psychology - Clinical Track from University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) 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 M.A. track.

This program values and promotes self-awareness as a significant component of training in clinical psychology. Students in this program engage in self-awareness exercises within their courses and practicum training. They are also strongly encouraged to engage in their own psychotherapy during their training.

Learning outcomes

About half of the graduates choose to go on to doctorate programs and the other half choose to enter the work force. The percent of students who get accepted for doctoral level programs is very high. Nearly 90% of those who have applied for Ph.D. level programs have been accepted. 

The graduates have gone on to places such as University of Houston, University of Miami, Kent State University, University of Nebraska, University of Kansas, University of Missouri, Purdue University, University of Alabama, Washington University, University of Arizona, CU-Boulder, Denver University, University of Kentucky, Louisiana State University, University of Montana, Nova Southeastern University, and Pacific University. 

Nearly all of the graduates who choose not to go on to doctoral level programs are working in areas that are relevant to their degrees. However, this is NOT a licensure program and it is possible that licensure at the M.A. level will no longer be possible in the state of Colorado for graduates of our clinical program.
