All clinical graduate students in our program are exposed sequentially to course work, research, and practicum training that is graded in complexity and evaluated on the basis of cumulative success.
The basic course requirements include standard courses in:
- Experimental design
- Univariate and multivariate statistics
- Clinical assessment
- Behavior pathology
- Psychotherapy and advanced therapeutic interventions
- Rofessional issues and ethics
- Various foundation courses which provide broad and general education in the social, developmental, biological, and cognitive/ affective bases of behavior.
- History and diversity
Completion of the core curriculum enables advanced students to develop specific interests by drawing upon faculty expertise in laboratory and clinical mentorships. Clinical students ultimately complete up to four years of supervised practicum training prior to application for a fifth year clinical internship prior to graduation. Students must also complete both a Master's thesis and Ph.D. dissertation. Roughly half of our clinical Ph.D. students complete their degree in five years with the overall average in our program being about 5.5 years.
