Guided by the educational principle of “researching the mind and supporting the person,” the Graduate Program in Psychology aims to foster highly skilled professionals capable of applying their knowledge of psychology in many different settings. Students in the master’s program are trained as specialized professionals who provide a range of supportive services in response to contemporary societal needs, while also gaining the skills to pursue a research career. To do so, they take a wide range of courses encompassing both psychology and clinical psychology as part of a curriculum that emphasizes experiments and practical training. The master’s program is divided into clinical psychology and psychology concentrations. The clinical psychology concentration trains professionals capable of working in a range of fields including healthcare, social welfare, education, the justice and criminal systems, and industry and labor through lecture courses on various psychological treatments such as client-centered therapy, psychoanalysis, group and community approaches to therapy, body-oriented psychotherapy, family therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy, as well as practical training within and outside of the school. The psychology course gives students a solid grounding in the studies of cognitive, physiological, lifelong developmental, social, industrial and organizational, and educational psychology, as well as psychometrics, with the objective of training professionals who can respond to a range of contemporary social problems.
