Program Overview

Through our program we seek to train scientist-practitioners with strong skills in the competencies of health service psychology. Our students can also tailor their training to become clinicians prepared for practice in various settings or academics and researchers prepare for work in college and university settings. Through coursework, practica, and other hands-on experiences and learning, students are prepared to be Counseling Psychology professions of the highest caliber.
