Overview

The clinical psychology program adheres to the scientist-practitioner model and so emphasizes high-quality research while also providing closely supervised and broad-based clinical training.

The programme

Our goal is to train graduate students to be skilled scientists and clinicians who integrate the science of psychology with its professional practice to improve the quality of the world in which we live and the lives of the people in our communities.

We work to help students create a program tailored to their interests while working closely with their mentor and department faculty.  We have a strong commitment to diversity, inclusion and the culturally competent practice of psychology, and we pride ourselves on pursuing scholarship that is diverse both in theory and method.

Accreditation

The clinical psychology program is accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA).
