Clinical Science Graduate Option
This option is available within the Psychology major at the following location:
The Clinical Science graduate option within the Psychology PhD program provides training in both research and service delivery using a clinical science training model that integrates the theoretical and empirical basis of human behavior, affect, behavior, and health with effective assessment, prevention and intervention. This entails an emphasis on empirical approaches to advancing knowledge through coursework in core psychological content areas; scientifically-grounded clinical courses; research methods and statistics; and practica placements providing in vivo experiences preparing students to provide high quality clinical services. Consistent with a university commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice, the program provides opportunities to deepen the knowledge and skills that strengthen psychological science and service delivery by interrupting intersectional forms of oppression. Graduates are skilled in using scientific methods and evidence to design, develop, select, evaluate, implement, deliver, supervise, and/or disseminate empirically-based clinical assessments, interventions, and prevention strategies, giving them the tools to thrive in positions that are heavily focused on research, teaching and supervision, practice, or a balance of these areas.
