Clinical Psychology (M.A.)


Return to Departments and Programs Return to: Departments and Programs

Director: Professor Ronald Miller

The Graduate Program in Clinical Psychology is a 60-credit degree program that can be completed on a full or part-time basis. Our objective is to provide a graduate education in professional psychology that balances theory, research and practice, and prepares students for entry-level professional positions in community agencies, clinics, schools and hospitals.

The program is not identified with any particular school of psychology, and the faculty offer a diversity of orientations and interest within the framework of the curriculum. While not identified with any specific theory, the program is broadly psychosocial based upon humanistic values, is committed to the highest standards of academic excellence, and insists that its students develop a broad-based, in-depth understanding of the conflicting theories, methodologies, and research traditions within clinical psychology. The program attempts to provide an educational milieu in which the free exchange of ideas is encouraged and the critical analysis of viewpoints is supported.

This approach to graduate education best serves students as they embark on what may be a lifetime career path. The master’s program in Clinical Psychology lays the foundation for later professional growth and education, whether on the job or in formal doctoral study.
