Counseling&Clinical Psychology

Our Mission

The Department of Counseling and Clinical Psychology prepares students to investigate and address the psychological needs of individuals, families, groups, organizations/institutions, and communities.

Counseling Psychology focuses on normal and optimal development across the lifespan, with particular attention to expanding knowledge and skills in occupational choice and transitions and multicultural and group counseling.

Clinical Psychology provides rigorous training in both contemporary clinical science and intervention. Increasingly, both aspects of this training have been focused on the needs of 
at-risk children and adolescents. The clinical component of the program reflects an ongoing psychodynamic tradition with additional opportunities for training in other theoretical models.

Thus, students in this department are trained to become knowledgeable and proficient researchers, to provide psychological and educational leadership, and to be effective practitioners. Specifically, graduates from these programs seek positions in teaching, research, policy, administration, psychotherapy, and counseling.
