Psychology: Clinical PhD

College of Arts and Sciences

Program Description

The Clinical Psychology PhD program follows a clinical science model. Clinical science is defined as a psychological science directed at the promotion of adaptive functioning; at the assessment, understanding, amelioration, and prevention of human problems in behavior, affect, cognition, or health; and at the application of knowledge in ways consistent with scientific evidence. We expect our students to contribute to the science of clinical psychology, and to learn to infuse their clinical work with empirical findings and theoretical concepts.
