MA in Clinical Psychology

The Masters in Clinical Psychology degree provides students with a community-based, holistic approach to psychotherapeutic practice. You will gain the practical and theoretical knowledge for a sustainable and successful career in the field of counseling, as well as the skills to work with diverse client needs and perspectives.

At the core of this degree is a strong emphasis on advocating for and creating positive individual and community change, particularly within the two optional concentrations in Healthy Aging and Latino Mental Health. There is also a Master’s in Psychology track for individuals seeking to work in the field of psychology outside of psychotherapy. Our stellar faculty are generally practicing clinicians in their fields and bring a wealth of real-world experience into the classroom, where students receive a high level of personal attention and mentoring.

Graduates of the Clinical Psychology program and its concentrations also fulfill the requirements for Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in California, while gaining extensive preparation for licensure through instruction and local community internships.
