  • PSYC 3755 - Clinical Psychology: Science, Practice, & Ethics
  • PSYC 3740 - Psychological Assessment
  • PSYC 3760 - Fundamentals of Counseling
  • PSYC 3710 - Advanced Abnormal Psychology
  • Two clinically relevant psychology electives chosen with your advisor

The Clinical Concentration includes content and theory as well as exposure to rudimentary clinical skills through role plays and assessments. Core concepts are introduced and critical feedback is offered in order to develop foundational clinical skills that can be honed and extended during graduate training. The Clinical Concentration does not of itself qualify students for practice as counselors or psychologists; practice as a professional counselor or clinical psychologist requires a graduate degree and licensure, and the concentration does not guarantee admission to a graduate program.
