Clinical Psychology

Welcome to the Clinical Psychology program

The Clinical Psychology Program provides rigorous training in both contemporary clinical science and clinical assessment and intervention. Our students develop hands-on research and clinical experience through the several labs at Teachers College — which examine risk and resilience in veterans; clinical intervention in diverse sociocultural and geographic contexts; psychotherapy methods; suicidality; and more — and at placements at other leading mental health facilities in New York City. Nationally known as the premier program for Clinical Psychology, our M.A. program is suited for applicants interested in strengthening their academic background in psychopathology, treatment, theory, and research methods prior to pursuing highly competitive doctoral programs.
